Animal Care -- Front Street Shelter Manager Gina Knepp raised $5,648 for the Shelter by jumping out of a plane on April 26, 2014.  That’s dedication to our furry friends. Gina posted her “leap of faith” on Facebook and asked “pledge a buck and wish me luck!” According to Gina municipal shelters are often underfunded and understaffed, that’s why we try extra hard on Front Street to come up with new and creative ways to save lives.

Solid Waste -- The Recycling and Solid Waste Division provides garbage, recycling, yard waste collection and street sweeping to more than 124,000 residential customers in the City of Sacramento. Recycling is collected every-other-week. Find your recycle week and sign up for recycle week text alerts.

Fleet -- City of Sacramento Fleet ranked 2nd Best in North America! Winners were announced on April 9th, 2014 at the largest fleet show, NAFA  Institute & Expo, and published in the prestigious Governing Magazine.

Facilities -- The Facilities team builds, renovates and maintains over 400 buildings and 2,000 parcels throughout the City of Sacramento.  Staff is always looking for ways to save energy and to support the City’s sustainability goals.  A large project is currently underway to achieve a complete retrofit of all City streetlights, converting them to environmentally-friendly LED lighting.  LED lights require less power to operate, provide a better quality of light, and will last in excess of 15 years before needing to be replaced.  Watch for these new streetlights in your neighborhood in the coming months.
