A Hazmat Situation(s).




On Thursday, December 28th during our afternoon drive, we discovered metal barrels labeled as "Hazardous" leaking on 133rd Street and onto Broadway. The labels indicated lung damage. We called 911 and fire station 95 was on-scene quick. A hazmat team was deployed and took 4 hours to determine the liquids in the barrels were some type of detergent. The barrels were removed that evening.


We are asking for your help with reporting the piles of waste sitting our streets throughout the Unincorporated LA County areas.
