Parking concerns on public sidewalks
Residents are reminded that parking on or across a public sidewalk is not only illegal — as it violates California Vehicle Code Section 22500 — but also poses a public safety concern for those in wheelchairs, the visually impaired, and those pushing strollers.
Vehicles in violation can be cited and/or towed. More information is at ci.claremont.ca.us.
Waste roundup event
Los Angeles County residents are invited to a free drive-through household hazardous waste roundup event Saturday, August 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the L.A. County Fair Hotel and Exposition Complex, 2118 N. White Ave., Pomona. Guests should enter through gate 9 from White Ave.
Residents may bring up to 15 gallons or 125 lbs. of hazardous or electronic waste or sharps containers. Items should be in a box, preferably in their original packaging, and placed in your vehicle’s trunk or truck bed.
No explosives, ammunition, radioactive materials, controlled substances, trash, tires, or large appliances such as refrigerators, stoves or washing machines will be accepted.
Residents are asked to label and secure items so volunteers can easily identify and remove them. Further details can be found at ci.claremont.ca.us.
