Let's Keep Hollywood Beautiful
To unite the community to promote the enhancement of private properties through education, outreach, and programs that focus on code compliance and city beautification in an effort to increase property values and retain/attract businesses.
What is the Let's Keep Hollywood Beautiful Program?
The "Let's Keep Hollywood Beautiful" movement started in 2015 as a way to educate and inform property owners to make Hollywood a better place to live, work and play.
As part of the Let's Keep Hollywood Beautiful Program, Code Compliance Officers regularly attend neighborhood and community meetings to present information and provide marketing materials on the program. Also, look for the "Let's Keep Hollywood Beautiful" pop-up booth at future City-sponsored events throughout the year. To request a Code Compliance Officer for your community event, please call Code Compliance at 954.921.3061.

Litter Prevention Programs
The Department of Public Works manages several programs designed to help Keep Hollywood Beautiful. Volunteer participation is essential to the success of these efforts. Your participation is welcomed. Volunteers are needed each month for Beach Sweeps, and neighborhood and civic associations can participate in the Cash for Trash and Adopt-A-Street programs. These programs are intended to keep Hollywood's beach, neighborhoods and streets clean and litter free.
The Adopt A Street program is an extension of the Broward County Adopt-a-Street program. Civic groups, businesses and individuals are encouraged to adopt roadways in their neighborhoods and perform four clean-ups per year. The group's name will be posted on signs placed at the beginning and end of their adopted roadway location. For more information please call 954.967.4526. To participate, please complete the application form online or print a copy and email Public Works here.
The City provides can catchers, trash bags, vests, and gloves to participants to facilitate clean-up events. To request supplies please complete the equipment and supply form or print a copy and email Public Works here . Please note: the Department of Public Works requires a minimum of seven business days prior to an event to complete requests.
Participants must complete an event completion form after each clean-up event. Please complete the event completion form online.
Please consider the environment before printing. ♻

Marine debris is often the result of deliberate or accidental actions by people on land and at sea. For example, uncovered trash bins, debris left in streets and on beaches, and items thrown overboard can all become marine debris. Items can travel for miles before landing on the shorelines or settling in the ocean. Marine debris can be carried by rivers, streams, and other waterways into the ocean and onto our shoreline.
Cash for TrashThe Cash For Trash program encourages neighborhood and civic associations to organize litter collection events to earn $6 per bag of trash collected. The Department of Community Development works with associations to organize and schedule clean-up events on the 2nd Saturday of each month. The Cash For Trash Booklet has additional program information as well as the application form. For more information on the program please call 954.921.3271.
100% of the latex paint collected through the Broward County Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program is recycled into new, high-quality exterior paint which is then provided to residents, non-profit organizations, and participating cities at no cost.
The Operation Paintbrush Program in Hollywood provides up to 20 gallons of high-quality exterior latex paint for free to single-family homeowners in Hollywood. Paint can be picked up at the Department of Public Works, 1600 S. Park Road in Hollywood from 8:00 a.m. until noon. Distribution is on a first-come, first-served, basis while the City's supply lasts. The next event is scheduled for Saturday, June 24, 2023. To participate, you must provide your current driver’s license with a Hollywood address and a current utility bill as proof of Hollywood residency. The paint colors typically offered are off-white, beige, terracotta, gray, and turquoise.
Paint distributed through the Operation Paintbrush program is supplied to participating municipalities by Broward County. The county recycles donated paint that is dropped off at their collection sites by Broward County residents who no longer have a need for it. The Operation Paintbrush Program relies solely on these donations.
Please contact the Department of Public Works at 954.967.4526 X 5515 to reserve your paint and for additional information on the program.
