Clean Streets LA is a city-wide effort to clean our neighborhoods.
Mayor Eric Garcetti launched Clean Streets LA in April, 2015 by executive directive, which calls for the City of LA’s Bureau of Sanitation (LASAN) to lead the following efforts to clean our neighborhoods:
5,000 new trash cans
Clean Streets LA will distribute 5,000 new trash cans throughout the city over the next 5 years. These additional bins will bolster the efforts of Clean Streets LA by making it even easier to ensure that trash goes where it belongs.
More Boots on the Ground
Clean Streets LA provides new funding to hire and train additional Sanitation crews who respond directly to bulky item pickup requests and reports of illegal dumping. This means more boots on the ground to do timely clean ups in the neighborhoods where they are needed most.
Cracking Down on Illegal Dumping
A vital component of maintaining clean streets is making sure that people who illegally use our streets, sidewalks and alleys as dumping grounds are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The Clean Streets Initiative empowers the City Attorney’s Office, LAPD, LA Sanitation, and Bureau of Street Services to develop new enforcement tools to fight illegal dumping in our neighborhoods.
Street by Street Monitoring
To more effectively track the cleanliness of LA’s streets, LA Sanitation has developed a state-of-the-art street-by-street cleanliness assessment system. With this new tool, Sanitation is better equipped to target areas of high need, and to ensure a fair allocation of services.
Working With Our Nonprofit Partners
Clean Streets LA is working with nonprofit partners to provide additional services, including weed, litter and graffiti abatement across the city, and to support community-driven clean-up activities.
