RESERVE YOUR TOOLS FOR YOUR NEXT CLEANUP EVENT!
Find the appropriate OCB contact based on Council District. Search council districts by address or contact our team to discuss your specific community.
Fill out the request form. You must fill out the top portion completely to facilitate the delivery process. The form must be submitted a minimum of two (2) weeks in advance to allow for scheduling of delivery.
Recruit volunteers! OCB will assist by posting the event information on our City Calendar. Be sure volunteers return all of the tools provided so that the warehouse can pick them up at a later time.
Address safety the day of the event. Please have a conversation with your volunteers on potentially dangerous items while cleaning. It is the responsibility of the event host/organizer to be sure volunteers are aware of potential dangers while cleaning the surrounding neighborhood of the area they have designated. If you anticipate potentially dangerous items, we advise you to carry a medical emergency kit in the case of small cuts. Any items like needles and human waste please contact the LA Sanitation & Environment. In the event of a serious injury, call 911.
