Re: “Oakland's Toxic Failure

The vast majority of the hazardous waste that was transported/disposed of illegally was waste that was abandoned on the streets of Oakland by oaklanders or by contractors that oaklanders hired. Be cautious of who you hire to clean out your garage or yard, to paint your house, to stucco your walls, etc., and make sure that they take your waste to the proper place to dispose of it. Illegal dumping is a big problem in Oakland and contributes to a lot of blight. Almost all of this waste could have been disposed of free of charge if the dumpers would just take it to Alameda County's Household Hazardous Waste Facility. It is open Wed - Fri: 9 a.m. - 2:30 p.m and Saturday: 9 a.m. - 4:00 p.m - no appointment necessary. It is located at 2100 East 7th Street, Oakland. Be vigilant in your neighborhood and if you witness illegal dumping write down the license plate of the vehicle or snap some pictures. The City is launching a unique program that will provide rewards to witnesses who help stop people illegally dumping in Oakland neighborhoods. With the Reward for Reporting Illegal Dumping Program, witnesses who report illegal dumping can receive up to half of all penalties collected in successful enforcement actions based on the witness’s reports.
This sends a strong message that Oakland will not tolerate illegal dumping in our neighborhoods and City streets.
There are 4 ways to report illegal dumping:
1. Call the Public Works Call Center at (510) 615-5566, Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.
2. Email: opwcallcenter@oaklandnet.com
3. Mobile app: http://en.seeclickfix.com/apps
4. Online: www.oaklandpw.com click on "Report a Problem"

When reporting illegal dumping, please:
•Include the type of debris, amount and location in your report.
•Never touch hazardous or medical waste!
•The City will take care of abating the illegal dumping and help you to apply for the reward program.

Oakland could be the cleanest Cities in the world if we would just start caring and refuse to accept the blight as status quo.
