About the Clean Streets Intiative
On April 23, 2015, Mayor Eric Garcetti issued Executive Directive No. 8 titled the “Clean Streets Initiative” which aims to improve the livability and cleanliness of the City of Los Angeles by targeting the removal of litter and debris from city streets, sidewalks, alleys, and other public spaces. ED No. 8 specifically directs the Bureau of Sanitation and the Department of Neighborhood Empowerment (EmpowerLA) to work together to engage Neighborhood Councils as partners to work towards the CSI mission.
