To report items dumped illegally in the evenings or on weekends call the Illegal Dumping Hotline at (323) 563-9575.
Illegal dumping is a crime! Leaving trash and discarded items in alleys and other public spaces looks bad and poses community health and safety hazards and places a major economic burden on the city to clean up the trash.
City, State and County laws specify strict penalties for people convicted of illegal dumping, which may include fines up to $10,000, seizure of their vehicle and/or six months in jail.
If you witness illegal dumping, report it immediately to the Police Department at (323) 563-5436
