Red Car Property: Some Dumping Never Seems To Leave *Updated

Photo: Diane Edwardson, July 21, 2014.  A TV has been lurking behind the trashcans at the India St entrance to the Red Car Property since at least April.  (Click on photos to enlarge.) 

Other dumping has come and gone, but the TV remains. Technically, this is part of the Red Car Property, "Lot C."  Yet the City trash trucks drive up onto the property to pick the trash here, in addition to using it as a turn around, as India St is so substandard.  So the City should pick up the dumping at India St too. *7-23-14 UPDATE: Yesterday, a neighbor called in the pile adjacent to the India Street trashcans, including the TV.  Today the City picked up the bookshelf, basket & other debris, but not the TV.

The City won't pick up dumping on private property.  It's the property owner's responsibility.  But if you witness someone dumping on the Red Car Property or anywhere else, get a vehicle/person description, license plate, photo if you can, and call 1-877-ASK-LAPD and make a report immediately.
