Garcetti's List

El Grito

Last night, hundreds of Angelenos attended our city's El Grito festivities on Olvera Street.

El Grito celebrates Mexico's independence and is not only part of Mexico's history, but a part of Los Angeles's cultural heritage.

I'd like to thank Consul General of Mexico David Figueroa Ortega and Jose Duarte, President of the Comite Civico Patriotico, for joining us.

Celebrating the New Echo Park Solar "BigBelly"

Today we installed a solar-powered “BigBelly” trash can on the corner of Echo Park and Sunset Boulevard. Because it has a built in compactor, the BigBelly unit can hold four times as much trash as the average trash can making it more cost-effective and more environmentally- friendly than traditional trash disposal options.

The BigBelly unit, which was funded through city grants, will help prevent overflow trash from ending up in storm drains and in places like Echo Park.

Thank you to everyone who helped make the BigBelly installation possible, including the Trash Abatement Project.
