2020 Public Works Road-E-O
The Public Works Road-E-O is a fun, “festival-like” event for your entire family. This year, it will take place on Saturday, February 22, 2020, from 10am-3pm, at the Public Works Administration Building, 1100 N. Chamberlain Blvd. Last year, over 2,400 attended the event. There will be children’s activities, equipment demonstrations, interactive booths, music, food vendors and bounce houses! Back by popular demand is our "Solid Waste Experience" where you can get in a garbage/recycling truck and see what it's like to operate the arm.
The highlight of the day is the “Road-E-O” in which Solid Waste and Operations & Maintenance heavy equipment drivers showcase their skills in a challenging obstacle course competition. Winners earn bragging rights for a year!

The International Coastal Cleanup is the world's largest volunteer effort to clean up waterways and the ocean. The International Coastal Cleanup is an educational tool to share key details about what is trashing our waterways and lakes with the public.
