Roseville’s Environmental Utilities selected a winner for the “Sustain the Gains” landscape makeover contest. For more than two months, the contest encouraged residents to continue water-efficient behaviors established during the drought and make it a way of life. More than 3,200 Roseville water customers entered and the winner – a 23-year Roseville resident – will have their front yard re-imagined this fall into a low-water-use landscape.
Every day. That is how often we use water. Could you imagine a day without water? No water to drink or use to make food. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or brush your teeth. Firefighters couldn't put out fires, pools would be closed, and farmers couldn't water their crops.
In an effort to keep our kids and water drug-free, a free medication take-back event will take place at 11 locations throughout western Placer County on Saturday, October 28, 2017 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
We offer free doorstep pick-up service for Roseville residents for a variety of electronic waste and other Household Hazardous Waste items. Once scheduled, leave electronic and/or hazardous waste at yourdoor step and we’ll haul it.
