Paper/E-Waste Recycling and Free Mulch Event

EDCO and the City of La Mirada are sponsoring a free paper shredding, e-waste collection and mulch event on Saturday, October 15 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. in the
La Mirada Community Gymnasium parking lot, 15105 Alicante Road.  All items will be shredded onsite with a limit of three bankers boxes (10”x12”x15”) per household.

Unwanted electronics (e-waste) will also be collected including TVs, computer monitors, printers, fax machines, VCRs, DVD players, and answering machines. No household hazardous waste material will be accepted.

Free mulch will be available while supplies last. This is a self-serve, self-loading service, so residents must bring their own cans/bags and shovel. Limit of 3 cans/bags per vehicle will be enforced. If you plan to haul your mulch in an open truck or trailer, remember to bring a tarp to cover the material.

This event is for La Mirada residents only and proof of residency, such as a CA Driver's License or utility bill indicating a La Mirada address is required.

La Mirada Volunteers Clean Up Creek Park

The “Love La Mirada” community group recently held a service day event in conjunction with the City of La Mirada’s Helping Hands program. Approximately 15 total volunteers painted the Creek Park sign and a bridge, picked up trash, and cleared walkways of debris.

“This event was a great way to promote the City’s Helping Hands program,” says Community Services Supervisor Lisa Montoya. “It was also an excellent opportunity to partner with a local organization to help better the community.”

The Helping Hands program provides free services to seniors, low-income and disabled La Mirada residents. Services include minor outdoor home maintenance and yard assistance, such as lawn mowing, planting, hedge trimming and painting.

The program is held on the last Saturday of each month, with exceptions during holiday weekends. This month’s event will take place on Saturday, October 29. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Resource Center at 8:30 a.m. Volunteers may sign up prior to the event or simply arrive at the Resource Center on the day of the event.

Community members, local businesses, churches and other groups make this worthwhile program possible. For more information about the program, call the Activity Center at (562) 902-3160.

La Mirada Property Values Continue to Rise

Property values in La Mirada have grown by more than 4.5 percent during the past year according to a recent report by the Los Angeles County Assessor’s Office.

La Mirada’s assessed value increase was $265 million, which is its highest mark ever at $6,051,859,016.

The increase in value is attributed primarily to the Assessor’s adjustment pursuant to Proposition 13 and re-assessments of property that were sold prior to January 1, 2016. The new figures were part of the 2016 Assessment Roll recently released by the Assessor’s Office.

The local housing market has also remained strong. The median sale price of a single family home in La Mirada from July to October 2016 is $525,000. This represents a $40,000 (8.2 percent) increase in median sale price from 2015.
