City of Los Angeles Sanitation Trash Pickup / Bulky Item Pickup

Venice is serviced by the City of Los Angeles for sanitation services. Depending on your street address, trash pickup is typically made once per week. Some apartment buildings and community groups have independent sanitation services that pick up more often.

Contact City Services by dialing 311 .Website: http://www.lacitysan.org/

** Important ** Bulky item pickup is FREE! If you have a large piece of furniture, a mattress or other large item, all you have to do is put it next to your trash bins and call the department of Sanitation and they will schedule a truck to come remove it at NO COST.

Bulky Item Collection

We encourage you to recycle your bulky items through charitable organizations and thrift stores. However, if you are unable to do so, the Bureau of Sanitation (BOS) will pick-up your large or bulky household items, such as mattresses, couches, and other furnitures from all residents serviced by the City of Los Angeles free of charge. To make arrangements to have these items removed from your curbside, please call Sanitation at 1-800-773-2489, from Monday through Friday, between 7:30 a.m. and 4:45 p.m., at least one day before your regular collection day. Bulky items are collected on the day of your regular trash collection day. Please have an itemized list ready when calling in your request. You could also send us your request for bulky items by clicking on the Service Request Form link indicated below. Fill out and submit the Service Request form. The Service Request form takes two days to be processed. BOS does not collect automotive parts, construction materials, commercial materials, and cardboards. Cardboards are only collected as a Move In/Move Out service not as a bulky item pickup. Please return to the main menu and read the Move In/Move Out service description.

City of Los Angeles Stormwater Services / Illegal Dumping

If you see illegal dumping in progress, dial 311 immediately.

To report illegal dumping for City cleanup click here to fill out the online report.

Illegal dumping into storm drains is a huge problem. Used motor oil, discarded food, trash and other debris are just some of the items routinely dumped into storm drains throughout the city. Curbside catch basins are the entry points of the storm drain system, which eventually discharges out into the ocean. Additionally, catch basins filled with debris can create unhealthy conditions in residential neighborhoods by becoming a breeding ground for rats, roaches and disease.

Residents are encouraged to report illegal dumping by calling the Stormwater Program at (800) 974-9794. Please note: after 5:00PM and before 7:00AM Monday through Saturday and all day Sunday the 800-974-9794 will roll over to the City’s 311 number.

You can also report Illegal Dumping in your neighborhood by visiting the City of Los Angeles’ Bureau of Sanitation.
