This past Saturday, the Department of Public Works staged a neighborhood clean-up. The main focus of the clean-up was along Harris Avenue from Carlin Avenue to McMillan Street including the alley.
The City had 13 staff members assisting the residents move bulky items and waste as well as with the clean-up itself.
A total of three 40-yard bins (each bin holds 40 cubic yards of waste) were filled to capacity in the first couple hours before 10:00am. Staff removed an additional 14 dump trucks full of items and debris from the area. They also cleared weeds and other debris.
Additional specific neighborhood clean-ups are scheduled to occur in the future. Residents living within the local boundaries will be notified in advanced.
In the meantime, the City of Lynwood is hosting the Fall Clean-up Event for the entire City. Here are the details:
Date: Saturday, September 21

Proof of Lynwood residency is necessary to drop off items.
