Neighborhood leaders with Vanessa Acosta and Public Works team at the Long Beach Art EXPO

Neighborhood Associations from across the city of Long Beach gathered at the Long Beach Art EXPO in Bixby Knolls for a neighborhood champions meeting on Thursday, February 29th. Vanessa Acosta of Public Works Litter Abatement & Awareness Campaign, organized the meeting to get feedback from neighborhood leaders as to how to better connect residents with programs and services provided by the Public Works Department.

If you are not aware of the many clean-up efforts going on in the city, we hope you will connect with one or start your own on your block or in your alleyway. Sign up HERE … or you can email us to get started at Vanessa Acosta of Public Works and her team will bring equipment, supplies and haul the trash away to help with the clean up.

We hope you will join us for another clean up on Saturday, March 16th starting at 9AM. We will meet in the parking lot with the mosaic flower mural on 7th and Dawson, AKA “The Friendship Corner.” Donuts, coffee and trash supplies will be provided. Feel free to RSVP to

The goal is to reduce the amount of trash we accumulate, and reuse when possible. Questions? Ideas? Email us at
