Sandbag Availability
Public Works DepartmentTranslate Smaller Text PrintShare

The City of Hawaiian Gardens has made sandbags available to City residents during winter storms or rain events.

Up to ten (10) pre-filled sandbags are available per household and are for residents only. Sandbags are available at the Mary Rodriguez Senior Center Parking lot (21815 Pioneer Blvd. Hawaiian Gardens, CA) between 6:30am and 3:30pm Monday – Friday.

Sandbags available for collection outside the Mary Rodriguez Senior Center

Placing the bags:
The side of the bag that is tied-closed should face the direction of water flow. Stomp each bag into place and stagger the layers like you would with bricks. The base of your sandbag barrier should be 1.5 times wider than the height. In areas where water could rise with no current, lay plastic on the ground and up to the walls and form a pyramid of sandbags.

After the storm:
Dispose of your used sandbags properly. When you’re done using the sandbags, empty the sand in your garden or yard. If the bags are in good condition, you can save them to refill for future use.

For additional information, please contact the Hawaiian Gardens Public Works Department at (562) 420-2641 ext 231.
