Penalties have increased for illegal dumping. Dumping waste, materials, packaging, and equipment on L.A. 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 up 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.
Undercover and uniformed officers have been deployed in an effort to catch illegal dumping in real-time.
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.
Well, I seem to be seeing individuals living on the streets doing this everyday all day and nothing is done. Oh, right current policy enables them with no legal means of punishment. Silly me. Continue with taxing me further. Please and thank you.
Good Luck. We had to call to have trash removed weekly from our alley which was the only access point to our house.
Yeah I’m sure the homeless care... nit
The underpasses look like a 3rd world country. CA has never been filthier & these politicians call themselves “environmentalists”. We’ll keep getting the same results as long as we keep electing the same failed politicians.
