Clean Streets Challenge A Success

Thank you to all of the Los Feliz stakeholders who cleaned up our neighborhood!

We exceeded our goal of 50 trash bags, taking over 65 bags of trash off the streets of Los Feliz.  In addition, we removed dangerous items such as hypodermic needles and filed dozens of bulky item pickup requests (via the MyLA311 app.)

Check out some photos of the cleanup below, or head to our instagram or facebook page to see more.

If you have photos to share, post them online and add the hashtags #cleanstreetslosfeliz & #cleanstreetsla.

Let’s keep Los Feliz looking great!
