LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Cleanup began today for homeless camps across Louisville.

A new homeless protection ordinance requires a 21 day notice at a camp and to the Coalition for the Homeless before a homeless person or their property can be displaced.

Notices were posted around area camps weeks ago.

As part of the new ordinance, all property removed from the camps will be stored for 30 days.
