Everyone deserves safe, clean streets. The recent explosion of illegal dumping in East and West Oakland is completely unacceptable and threatens residents’ public health. I am committed to ensuring everyone lives in a beautiful neighborhood with safe, clean public spaces and streets by working towards putting an end to illegal dumping in our city. That’s why we’ve aggressively increased fines for illegal dumping, added another pick up crew and added more trucks and specialized equipment to remove trash from dump sites. We’re also working to prevent dumping in the first place by restoring litter enforcement officers and launching informational campaigns.
