On August 26 about twenty stakeholders turned out to clear up illegally dumped items from along Stanford Avenue under the 105 freeway and put them into two large nearby dumpsters. The clean up was organized by the HGNNC and the dumpsters were provided by Council District 15. The Office of Beautification-Department of Public Works provided the tools for the clean up.

Caltrans has recently conducted a major clean up along the south side of the 105 freeway, from San Pedro Street to Stanford Avenue, in HGNNC District 8. HGNNC Chairperson Miguel Vazquez worked with Caltrans to schedule the clean up and then coordination was provided by Alison Queen – Caltrans District 7 Public Information Officer, Wendy Higgins – Interim Caltrans Homeless Coordinator, and LAPD Senior Lead Officer Tyson Hamaoka.
The Adopt-a-Highway group from HGNNC District 6 west of the 110 Harbor Freeway participated in Caltrans Earth Day clean on April 22, gathering up litter and weeding along the edge of the freeway. The group meets monthly to keep the area near their homes free of litter and reports illegal dumping via 311.
HGNNC is proud to report that our District 6 Representative Jackie Jackson got together with her stakeholders to tackle one of their most chronic areas for illegal dumping. They worked together, cleaned up and used the MYLA311 app to arrange for the bulky items to be picked up. Jackie Jackson is our District Representative of the month. GREAT JOB!
