Removing 8 Tons of Trash a Day to Keep the Fashion District Clean
The BID Clean Team is currently collecting nearly eight (8) tons of trash from Fashion District streets each day. That's 16,000 lbs! Or 160 pounds per block. This is in addition to the clean-ups the Department of Sanitation has been doing in the area, including the clean-up of an encampment at 16th and Santee streets and the removal of illegal dumping from the freeway underpass at Wall and 16th streets.

Before After

In addition to trash, the Clean Team has been busy removing hundreds of unsightly graffiti tags from Fashion District properties. Just take a look at these before and afters of the alley between Main and Spring streets from 7th to 8th.


BID staff works directly with the City of Los Angeles and Council District 14 to bring additional City services, like those provided by the Sanitation Department, to the Fashion District. We encourage everyone to help us keep our neighborhood clean by reporting illegal dumping and graffiti issues to our office 213-741-2661 or directly to the City of Los Angeles using the 311 app
Protect Your Property: How to File a "No Trespassing" Authorization Form
One way to ensure your property is protected is to post "NO TRESPASSING" signs in appropriate areas AND file a "No Trespass Authorization Form" each year with Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD). This form when filed with LAPD allows LAPD to arrest trespassers on your property.

You can download the form  here. You can submit the form via email to: or drop it off at the BID Administration Office at 110 E. Ninth Street, Suite A1175. We will file it with LAPD for you.

New Emergency Contact Cards are available for all Fashion District property owners, businesses, and residents. These cards are meant to provide important contact and outreach numbers. They are available for download on the Fashion District website here, or request one from any BID Safe Team officer. They are also available for pick-up from the BID Administration Office at 110 E 9th St, Suite A-1175.
