    West Hollywood Hosts First of Three Community Clean-Up Events

    Community members and West Hollywood City staff met at WeHo City Hall, 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard for a Mid-City Community Clean-Up event on Sunday, April 10, 2022. This is one of three events taking place in various locations within the City in the months of April and May 2022.

    Council member John Erickson joined the clean-up effort to give West Hollywood residents, business owners, community members, and volunteers an opportunity to help beautify the West Hollywood community while engaging with neighbors, local business owners, and West Hollywood City Council members and City staff.

    “Turnout was good. We can always use more volunteers, but I’m excited to see as more people become aware they can still sign up for the Eastside and Westside clean up they’ll take part,” Council member Erickson told WEHO TIMES. “Residents and business owners asked what we were doing and after they realized we were cleaning up, they were very thankful. It was nice to be out and about and helping out. I’m looking forward to the next one. It was also nice to see that our city does a great job proactively of street sweeping, cleaning the various sidewalks, replenishing the dog waste stations, and picking up bulky items.

    For those who constantly complain about the cleanliness of the city, and didn’t show up to volunteer for this recent community clean-up event, there are two more opportunities to do your part:

    • Saturday, May 7, 2022 – Eastside Community Clean-Up 

    Check-in location: Plummer Park, 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard

    Check-in: 9 a.m.; Clean-up: 9:45 a.m. to 12 p.m.

    • Saturday, May 21, 2022 – Westside Community Clean-Up

    Check-in location: West Hollywood Park, 647 N. San Vicente Boulevard

    Check-in: 9 a.m.; Clean-up: 9:45 a.m. to 12 p.m.

    Volunteers will be provided with cleaning supplies (such as gloves, trash pickers, bags, etc.), water, and snacks. Volunteers will be asked to fan out across the designated area to pick up litter in streets, alleyways, parks, parkways, and other public places. Participants will also be notified to take note of any other community beautification needs that should be reported to City staff, such as graffiti, bulky items, or other issues. Residents, businesses, neighborhood-watch groups, Advisory Boards and Commissions, and other community members are all encouraged to participate. Block by Block Security Ambassadors and some City staff members will also participate and will be available to respond to questions from community members.

    If we could just get the homeless to clean our streets by offering them pay by the hour or by the amount of trash they collect…our city would be spotless.
