Community engagement initiative that enlists city residents as advocates holding LA Sanitation's feet to the fire so that illegally dumped objects get picked up within a reasonable time frame.

    El Basurero

    MyLA311 (http://lacity.org/myla-311/myla-311-service-request) is an excellent service that allows city residents who know about it get bulky items and illegally dumped furniture picked up for free. The problem is, not enough people know about it or take the few seconds involved to logon and enter a request for service. Basurero would be a sustained door to door and social media campaign to publicize MyLA311 and get neighborhoods like Koreatown, Mid City, South LA and East LA swept clean.
