NBC Southern California reported:

Garbage Piles and Rats Are Stinking Up LA’s Famed Fashion District

LA’s world-famous Fashion District has become the city’s unofficial garbage can, anchored by a quickly expanding 12-ton mountain of trash that’s the result of months of illegal dumping, creating a massive public health nightmare.

Frustrated business owners contacted the I-Team to show us how a burned out commercial building on East Pico Boulevard, once a clothing showroom, has become a dumping ground for an estimated 12 tons of trash. That’s even after their repeated calls to 3-1-1 to clean up the mess that’s swarming with rats and flies.

The trash from the building is spilling out into the public alley, where it’s a breeding ground for armies of rodents. And, homeless people are living in the huge health hazard.

“This is embarrassing,” said Joe Song, owner of Glam Apparel, which backs up to the trash mountain. “In the heart of Los Angeles, I cannot believe we have this. And there’s nobody doing anything about it.”

The mayor of LA has a lot of nerve lecturing anyone on the environment.
