On October 11th, the City Sanitation crews kicked off their long-awaited expansion of bi-weekly cleanups to the southern portion of the Industrial BID. The BID led a nearly two-year advocacy effort to convince the City to pledge the necessary funding to include streets south of 7th St. in these vital cleanups. Many of you supported us with your letters and emails as unsanitary conditions grew throughout our area.

We’re happy to report that Operation Healthy Streets (OHS) now covers approximately 90% of our BID area. These regular bi-weekly cleanings include trash removal, bulky item removal and sidewalk sanitizing by special City hazmat crews. Click here for maps that show the streets and schedules.

If you have any questions, please call our Dispatch Desk at 213-228-8484, ext. 210.
