LA Sanitation Receives an Inaugural Analytics 50 Award from Drexel University and CIO.com

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 19, 2016)— LA Sanitation (LASAN)’s CleanStat program was honored as one of the winners of the inaugural Analytics 50 Awards by Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business, and CIO.com.  The goal of the award is to honor and identify 50 leaders who are using data analytics to solve unique challenges, sharing best practices as well as recognizing innovation in analytics.

The CleanStat program is a key feature of Clean Streets Los Angeles. Launched by Mayor Eric Garcetti in April 2015, Clean Streets LA calls for LASAN to lead efforts in cleaning the streets of Los Angeles. To effectively track the cleanliness of LA’s streets, LASAN developed CleanStat, a street-by-street cleanliness assessment system that enables LASAN to provide more efficient and effective services to the people of Los Angeles.

“LA Sanitation is the first and only big city in the United States to assess every street like this,” said LA Sanitation Executive Director, Enrique C. Zaldivar, P.E., “We are proud to be honored with one of the first Analytics 50 awards for our pioneering effort to use data analytics to protect public health and the environment, as well as improve the livability of our neighborhoods in Los Angeles.”

CleanStat assessments occur four times a year. LA Sanitation teams drive every street and alley (approximately 22,775 miles) in Los Angeles to survey and score the amount of litter, bulky items, illegal dumpings and weeds. The information enables the City to plan, organize and direct the appropriate resources to address the specific needs on any given block.

Los Angeles is one of only two cities to receive an Analytics 50 award.

“I have a community garden here and I’ve lived in this neighborhood for 30 years. A few of us got asked about all this trash up against the fence. It should be cleaned up and kept clean because we keep our area up. We probably have a hundred kids out here today. It’s fantastic. It really is. It’s awesome. They’re a good group of people and they’re working hard too. I hope the community continues to get involved and help out more. It’s a lot of fun. You also get a lot of exercise. You see me sweating now, but I am enjoying it. And I advise any person to get outdoors and work, get that vitamin D, it’ll help. It’s great for you especially as you get older.”
