PICK UP YOUR 2018 COMMUNITY RECYCLING AWARENESS CALENDAR

Happy New Year from the City of Calabasas! Be sure to pick up your free 2018 Calabasas Community Recycling Awareness Calendar to see the winning drawings from youth in the community.

This year’s theme was "Food Recycling: Yes, You Can. Ideas for Reducing Food Waste" and the City received nearly 1,500 entries! Forty-five Calabasas teachers turned in classroom packets of drawings. Participating teachers each received a $50 gift certificate for their classroom.

The Calabasas Environmental Commission selected fourteen drawings to include in the City’s 2018 calendar. Copies of the calendar have been distributed to schools and they are also available at all city facilities for free. Each winner was awarded a $25 gift certificate.

HONORING MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

"Life's most persistent and urgent question is: what are you doing for others?" Martin Luther King, Jr. dedicated his life to helping all Americans have equal access to the American Dream. On Monday, January 15 we celebrate the life and achievements of this influential American civil rights leader. Here are some ideas to honor Dr. King and to enrich your life in the process:

• Lend a Hand. Help out with a community service event. Whether it takes an hour or a day, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you and your community.
• Learn about Martin Luther King, Jr. Visit your local library or go online to learn more about this inspiring American.
• Create Your Own Dream. Listen to Dr. King’s “I have a dream” speech and then think about your own dream. Write it down and then list three or four concrete steps you can take to make your dream into reality. You can even make a video with your family and upload it to your social media site. Inspire others, just as Dr. King did.
• Participate in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. The MLK Day of Service empowers individuals, strengthens communities, bridges barriers, creates solutions to social problems, and moves us closer to Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community. To learn more about how to become involved, please visit: http://mlkday.gov/about/serveonkingday.php.

Have a great and meaningful January 15, 2018!

FIGHT FOG - KEEP FATS, OILS, AND GREASE OUT OF YOU DRAIN

FOG Stands for Fats, Oils, and Grease and are found in common food and food ingredients such as meat, fish, butter, cooking oil, mayonnaise, gravy, sauces and food scraps.

If poured down the drain or into the garbage disposal, FOG will build up over time, adhering to sewer walls. This could eventually cause an expensive sewer backup in your home.

Instead...COOL IT, CAN IT, AND TRASH IT!

Pour cooled fats, oils, and grease into a covered disposable container and throw it in your trash. Before washing dishes, scrape food scraps from plates, pots and pans into the trash or compost. Soak up remaining fats, oils, and grease with a paper towel and dispose of it in the trash.

SIGN UP FOR CERT CLASSES

Save the date - CERT classes begin Tuesday, February 6! The County of Los Angeles Fire Department Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training was developed through FEMA to provide basic fire safety and life saving skills. Following a major disaster, police, fire and medical professionals may not be able to meet the demand for emergency medical attention. Residents and neighbors may need to rely upon one another to help with immediate life saving needs, particularly in isolated neighborhoods that may be cut off from the main roads. The CERT classes will teach you how to prepare and respond in these scenarios.

Classes will be held at the Calabasas Founders Hall (behind the library) on Tuesdays from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., February 6, 2018 through March 20, 2018. There is no charge for the classes but all sessions must be attended in order to receive a certificate of completion. If you need to miss a class, that class can be made up at a later time.

To register, call (818) 224-1620 or sign up online at www.fire.lacounty.gov/cert.
