This year Los Feliz will not be dethroned as a LA ‘Clean Streets’ champion.   Meet up, join up and help clean up (our streets AND this year’s cash prize)!   There’s four rally locations, be there!..

Neighbor teams hit several Los Feliz trashy ‘hot spots’ – cleaning sweeping, tagging bulky items, trying to win $2K in neighborhood prize money.

There are 2 ways to join in:

1 – Join up with one of our Clean Streets teams!  Just meet at one of the following locations:

2 – Sweep YOUR Space:

  •  Clean in front of your own home or business, and/or report bulky items with the MyLA311 app. Please take a before & after picture of your work and hashtag it #cleanstreetsLA and #cleanstreetsLF and post on Instagram or Twitter.  There’s a prize for the most MyLA311 posts between now and Nov 30th!
