StreetsLA, formerly the Bureau of Street Services, has modified street sweeping operations and launched a notification system to alert the public about days and times when streets will be swept.
With the COVID-19 pandemic and staff reductions, the frequency of street sweeping will change on routes in the city of Los Angeles from weekly to bi-weekly. To assist residents with the changes, a map and street-sweeping notification system can be viewed by visiting streetsla.lacity.org/sweeping.
The notification system will allow users to input an address and get notification 24 hours before sweeping via email. The goal is to give residents an opportunity to move their vehicles prior to the posted sweeping time and avoid being cited.
“StreetsLA has done a brilliant job in adapting during the pandemic and with staff reductions, while working hard to maintain core services,” said Board of Public Works Commissioner Teresa Villegas. “Street sweeping is one of the key services for Angelenos and we appreciate the stakeholders’ feedback and understanding as we make modifications.”
In addition to the website, notifications will be disseminated by City Council offices, the Los Angeles Department of Transportation, neighborhood councils and the StreetsLA Stakeholder Advisory Council, as well as social media and online community platforms.
Residents can also contact the city’s 311 call center from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. on weekends for information, or use the 311 app.
“We want to thank the residents of the city as we make these changes to the street sweeping operation,” StreetsLA General Manager Adel Hagekhalil said. “We are committed to maintaining this important service, while also giving us the opportunity to adjust in order to maximize our resources.”
