In an effort to ensure that Lynwood’s alleys are clean, the City’s public works crews clear them of illegally dumped items and debris on a 10-to-14-day rotation. It is necessary as the items dumped sometimes create hazardous conditions and block residents from their homes.
"We publish these progress reports to help explain what our residents are already seeing: the significant work to repair our streets and sidewalks that continues, as well as the necessary improvement in our infrastructure that has resulted. It's what our residents wanted and needed - and we will continue to deliver positive results," said Lynwood Mayor Oscar Flores.
Last week, Lynwood’s public works crews cleared three alleys of items that included a lot of furniture, car parts, clothing, boxes and bags of trash and food waste. All of the items could have been disposed of properly by either calling Bulky Item pick-up or recycling and/or donating the unwanted items.
The alleys cleaned included:
- Imperial Hwy, Winchell’s alley from Linden St. to Pine Ave.,
- Duncan Ave. west alley from MLK, Jr. Blvd. to Los Flores Blvd., and
- Pope Ave west alley from MLK Jr, Blvd. to Los Flores Blvd.
In addition to the three alley clean-ups, Lynwood’s public works crews performed the following tasks:
- Picked-up illegally dumped items and/or cleared debris from 59 locations,
- Cleaned 82 catch basins and storm drains to prevent flooding during the recent rainstorm,
- Repaired 181 potholes,
- Prepared MLK, Jr. Blvd for the Candy Lane Christmas Parade held last week,
- And other tasks too numerous to list.
Reminder, you can dispose of your unwanted items by calling Bulky item pick-up at 888-467-7600.
