This #SmallBusinessSaturday, stop by our partners @garibaldos_nursery and @ricardosnursery to purchase California Native Plants! Knowing which plants are native can be challenging when shopping, but these two nurseries have dedicated space and knowledgeable staff that can help Long Beach residents find the native plants best suited for their needs. Just look for the LBWD Native Plant signs!⠀

🦃 Happy Thanksgiving from Long Beach Water Department! We’re grateful for our employees who work to bring you clean, reliable water service and our amazing community that values water use efficiency. ...

As people become more conscious of cleanliness, the use of baby wipes, paper towels, and disinfecting wipes has increased. ⠀ ⠀
Please do your part in preventing negative impacts on the sewer system: put wipes (including those labelled “flushable”) and paper towels in the trash 🗑️, not the toilet 🚽. ⠀ ⠀
Together, we can ensure our community continues receiving uninterrupted water and sewer services.💙

The biggest cause of drain damage during the holiday season is the Notorious FOG — fats, oils & grease. Make sure you dispose of items like gravy and turkey trimmings in the trash this Thanksgiving! ...

Today is World Toilet Day! (yes, really)⠀
All potty humor aside, this day is about tackling the global sanitation crisis. 🚽 Toilets are an important way of protecting people and the environment from disease, but 4.2 billion people live without safely managed sanitation. Learn more at https://www.un.org/en/events/toiletday/

Just like us, water valves need exercise to stay healthy! Our Long Beach Water Department employees regularly maintain water valves by putting them through their range of motion to ensure they work when needed. ...

Got (spoiled) milk? ⠀

Fats, oils & grease should never go down the drain - including milk and dairy products. Throw them in the trash instead! #FOGFriday⠀

Be sure to recycle the milk container and visit @LBRecycles for more recycling tips!

Join us this #VeteransDay in honoring all those who have served and continue to serve our country. We salute you! ...
