Public Workshops To Be Held on Redistricting
Redistricting, the decennial process of redrawing district lines based on new Census numbers has begun in the City of Alhambra. City officials are asking the public to participate by attending a workshop, submitting a public comment form, or submitting their own draft map for consideration.

“Public involvement is critical in this process,” said Mayor Katherine Lee. “The goal of redistricting is to provide fair and effective representation for all. The public can help achieve that goal by actively participating in the redistricting process.

The city will hold its first of five public workshops via Zoom on Thursday, November 4th, at 6pm. 
With an interest in accessibility and receiving as much public input as possible, the city will be providing live interpretation during the workshops in Spanish, Vietnamese, and Mandarin.

Additionally, an online mapping tool and public comment form are available through the City’s website.
A draft map will be presented in January 2022 at the conclusion of the public workshops. The public will then have an opportunity to comment before a final map is adopted in March 2022.
Census data reveals the City of Alhambra’s population now stands at 83,109.
For more information about the process, the public can email City Clerk Lauren Myles.

Organics Waste Recycling Changes Ahead
California Senate Bill 1383, which was signed into law in 2016, will be bringing changes to how residents and businesses dispose of organic waste in the coming years. SB 1383 establishes a goal of reducing the volume of organic waste disposed in California landfills by 75% by 2025.

Organic waste includes lawn and landscaping debris, wood and lumber, food, food-soiled paper, and other paper and cardboard products. Currently, two thirds of this material is landfilled. As organics break down in landfills they create methane, a powerful greenhouse gas which the state of California has identified as a factor in climate change.

The City of Alhambra and Republic Services are currently planning programs that will help us meet the goals of SB 1383. In the meantime, here is what you can do:
• Recycle all clean, dry paper and cardboard products in your blue cart.
• Keep lawn and landscaping debris separate from trash and recyclables and place this clean, green material into your green cart.
• If you operate a business or manage a multi-family property, ensure that you have both recycling services and yard waste collection services in place. (Many businesses are also required to collect food scraps for organics recycling. For details, visit
• Donate edible food to food pantries and other agencies to feed the hungry rather than tossing it into the trash. SB 1383 also establishes a goal of increasing edible food recovery by 20% by 2025.

If you have additional questions, please call 747.245.9152 or visit www.republicservices/municipality/ for more information.
