Operation Clean Sweep


Bi-annually, the City of Inglewood offer our residents the opportunity to get rid of large, bulky items, such as furniture, refrigerators, and mattresses, etc., at no charge.  The Operation Clean Sweep (OCS) program event also includes the removal of bundled wood pieces, bundled tree branches and boxed trash and debris.  During the OCS program event there is no need to call in your pickup request.  Just have your items at curbside for pickup and the items will be removed. 

Consolidated Disposal Service/Republic Services (CDS), the City's franchise waste haul company takes pride in providing this service to Inglewood for the past eight years. Twice a year, CDS removes your OCS bulky items on Saturday during the OCS event period.  For example, if your regular trash pickup day is on Monday, then your OCS date will be on the first Saturday of the OCS program event, and if your regular trash pickup day is on Tuesday, then your OCS date will be on the second Saturday of the event, and so on.  The OCS event notification is advertised on the City's website as well as in the City-billed Utility bill, giving advance notice of the event dates.  

Over time we have seen that some residents are placing their OCS bulky items out outside of the program event schedule and without regard to safety and proper placement to avoid hazards to the collection staff and without regards to neighborhood beautification. 

While, it is the City's and CDS' intent to provide the OCS program services, we ask that you place your items out in a neat, safe and contained manner, to facilitate safe and speedy collection.   The means loose items should be bundled (boards, branches, greenwaste and other small items – bundling makes items faster and easier to collect.  Other loose trash should be placed into a container, bag or box weighting no more than 60 pounds, wood, lumber, and tree bundles shall not be more than four (4) feet in length.  You may set the items out for collection after 5:00 pm the day before your Saturday event collection day, ensuring that all items are ready for collection by no later than 7:00 am the Saturday of your event date. 

We look forward to being in service to you -
