Can’t move your car because there’s a giant gaping hole in the hood? Unfortunately the city will ticket you anyways, like it did for this vehicle parked on Logan Street next to Gabriella Charter School. Both air bags were deployed inside the car, so we are hoping everyone is uninjured.

A little tip: If you can’t move your car on street sweeping days (or possibly even next to an expired meter) because it’s broken down or busted, call 311 and ask them to give you a get out of jail free card so you won’t get ticketed. We think you get about three per year, so use them wisely!

Getting rid of an old chair, couch, or other rubbish that just won’t fit in your trash can? Don’t just leave it curbside. The city will actually dispose of bulk items – for FREE.

If your bulk items still have some life left, consider donating to Out of the Closet thrift store in Echo Park, which will pick up your items for you, or Goodwill in nearby Hollywood. Otherwise, all you have to do is dial 3-1-1. Please call the service if you also see abandoned furniture around the neighborhood.

Paints, solvents, and computer equipment can be dropped off on Saturdays and Sundayat the nearest S.A.F.E. collection center in Glendale. Learn more here.
