Do you have dumped trash in your neighborhood that has to be removed? Here's what the city says to do:
Report overflowing litter containers to Waste Management of Alameda County at (510) 613-8710. When calling, provide the litter container number or the exact location of the litter container.
To legally dispose of unwanted household items:
- Donate your salvageable items to Goodwill Industries (510) 698-7200 or firstname.lastname@example.org; or Salvation Army (510) 451-4514 or salvationarmy.org.
- Contact Waste Management of Alameda County to schedule a free bulky pickup (mattresses, sofas, chairs, tables, appliances) at (510) 613-8710 or email@example.com.
- Call the Public Works Call Center at (510) 615-5566. Dumping in progress should be called in to 911. The department says that since, OPD will provide an on-line report process at oaklandpolice.com for illegal dumping that is witnessed by a citizen, but is no longer in progress. However, that form isn't discoverable.
