BEACH BID IN THE COMMUNITY
MORE HELP WITH BULKY ITEM PICKUPS IS NOW AVAILABLE WITHIN THE DISTRICT!
We are very aware that extra trash and bulky items have been piling up in the district – and we can help! On or before June 29, we will be increasing our capacity to dispose of district waste. This means that you will be able to call the BID for pickup of bulky items within 24 hours, and as often as possible we will come right away. Please note that we still cannot remove personal property. However, the BID teams are also working with our unhoused residents to determine what property has been abandoned by others and what items encampments no longer want. We understand that sidewalks in many areas have become unwalkable and are doing what we can to assist with this.
Please remember that we are here to help and call on us as needed. If you have feedback or questions for us, please email the BID at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
