To improve the quality of life for neighbors, Councilmember Price has brought together government and non-profit organizations in an unprecedented $4 million effort to create cleaner and safer neighborhoods in District 9.
"Councilmember Curren Price's $4 Million Cleanup Program" is made up of a partnership with LA Sanitation & Environment (LASAN), as well as 16 dedicated clean-up crews with members from the CD 9 Rapid Response, Coalition for Responsible Community Development (CRCD), and LA Conservation Corps (LACC), working Monday through Saturday throughout the District.
The partnership has contributed to the removal of thousands of tons of loose trash and debris, bulky items and illegal dumping from CD 9 streets to date. Additionally, the dedicated crews have been addressing other areas of need such as weed abatement in the public right of way, alley cleanups, corridor sweeps, parks and school zones.

Penalties Increased for Illegal Dumping
Dumping waste, materials, packaging and equipment on LA streets, sidewalks and alleys or in public bins is a crime and is subject to increased fines or criminal prosecution.
The City is cracking down on those who trash our sidewalks and streets:
- Penalties for violations under City and/or State law are punishable from a $200 fine to as much as $25,000 and/or jail time.
- Surveillance cameras have been installed throughout the City. Footage from these and private business cameras is being used as evidence in pursuing criminal cases against illegal dumpers.
- Citizen Reporting: the MyLA311 app has been updated to make it easier for witnesses of illegal dumping with evidence or first-hand information to report it to the City for investigation.
