What’s Going on Here?
Being from a big city, I believed what I
read and heard that about small communities,
that everybody knew each other, and would
do anything for their neighbors and so on.
We are friendly people, yet find people in
E.S. not to be so. It lacks neighborly outreach.
Our Open House seemed to be enjoyed a
few years ago, but the lack of any attempt to
“wave” or say “hi” in response shows they
can’t be bothered. What’s going on here? Do
people want to keep to themselves? What

Trash Can Eyesore:
Does anyone besides me view all these
new, over-sized plastic trash containers as
I volunteer with the ES Police Department
and drive many of the streets and alleys of
El Segundo regularly. We are looking for
anything out of the ordinary. We also check
homes of persons on vacation and report
graffiti. One of the things that stood out
recently while on patrol was the abundance
of the new, oversized plastic trash containers.
It seems that they are so large that they
can’t be stored out of sight and are in the
front of many homes or in the alleys almost
blocking access. I know from experience that
the large container was so big, I couldn’t get
mine through my side gate!
Perhaps people don’t realize the visual
impact of so many containers. I personally
don’t need 96 gallon containers. I called
the new disposal company and talked to a
very nice lady and she said that we could
exchange them for containers half that size
(or smaller) at no cost. You could even mix
and match sizes, if you want.
I guess the concern here is visual impact.
Containers stored in the front of the house
or apartment all week long is not a pretty
picture. Consider smaller, more easily stored
and moved trash containers. Help keep El
Segundo a nice place to live.
