Rick Swinger starts GoFundMe to clean up Rose and 3rd area.

Residents on Rose near 3rd are taking action to clean up area. They want no dumping signs at Rose and 3rd. They want the area cleaned. They have started a GoFundMe and are moving forward.

Last week a caption under this photo showed trash that was picked up by a black truck owner and carted quickly away right after photo was taken. Corner was even swept clean. That was Morales Hauling.

Update was notified that this trash that is being dumped at Rose by well-meaning grocery stores is actually being removed by local residents in vicinity of Rose. The local residents started a GoFundMe to get contributions to clean up the area. Morales with the black truck charges $150 to do a haul to the dump. What was on the corner was one haul.

These dumped boxes of food attract rats to the neighborhood. Even people who are sleeping out on Rose complain of the rats and lack of cleanup.

Rick Swinger, of north Venice, decided to do something about it. So far he has collected $280 and $150 was used for the boxes at the corner. The alley between Hampton and Rose is to be cleaned this week with a steam cleaner.

  1. Folks have been asking me where they can hire this now famous “Black Truck” for trash clean- ups and trip to the city dump. Well the man that did such a great job cleaning, sweeping and hauling the pollution on Rose and 3rd is Morales and he removes all types of waste,garage cleaning,demolition,hauling and moving.His number is 310-654-7988. He is a very nice man and I have used him a few times for Venice Clean-ups as well as my neighbors who needed help in moving a few items. 5 Star reviews

    So this is what it takes to clean this health hazard? You have county and city government so politically correct and detached from reality that they would rather enable the Third Street mess then actually solve the problem. It is the equivalent never taking a diaper off a child you are intending to toilet train or never taking the training wheels off a child’s bike with the expectation they will miraculously learn to ride a two-wheeler.
    So the answer is to continue to allow defecation, drug use and the other unspoken horrors of Third Street and continue to appropriate hundreds of thousands of dollars to temporarily clean this mess to lend to the illusion something is being done.
    Now you have a Venice citizen so frustrated by the governmental incompetence and inaction by both the County & City governments that he is seeking private funding because the government we fund with tax dollars is so woefully incompetent and unable to get out of their own way this situation has now festered for years.
    Are Bonin and Kuehl not embarrassed by the Third Street debacle? Do they not realize this will have an effect on home values, rentals, tourism and the overall economy of this area of Venice that would be thriving minus this cancer?
    You get what you vote for and this situation will probably only be solved through the courts with legal action that sues both LA County and LA and compel them to act.

    This is the way that the Bonin/social service Mafia rolls. Vilify anyone who does anything contrary to their social engineering agenda on social media or close it down completely – They did it to Patch, they did it to YoVenice, and before the internet, they did it to the Argonaut. “Jack Kelly” is just another arm of the good people who are filling our town with a potentially VERY dangerous population of the disenfranchised, runaway children, drug addicts, and unemployable ex-cons, as well as screwing up traffic with their bicycle fantasy and allowing overdevelopement in a place that is already overcrowded. When I first saw the film Blade Runner, I wondered how LA could ever turn into what was presented there – Now I know – Thanks Bonin!

  4. Thanks Reta for being a witness and documenting a basic trash clean-up. Why would Jack Kelly want to slander my name and organization and Lie? Is he a Mike Bonin Troll Ive been hearing about?

    More propaganda. That trash was picked up by the city during it’s regular weekly Friday clean-up on Rose. There was no “black truck.” Rick Swinger is getting money from all of you under false pretenses. And it’s probably all ending up being snorted up his nose.
