Oakland, CA – The City of Oakland is launching a new program that will provide monetary rewards to people who report illegal dumping. Witnesses can receive up to half of all penalties collected in successful enforcement actions based on the witness’s reports. This is an exciting new program that will send the message that Oakland will not tolerate illegal dumping in our neighborhoods.
A press conference to launch the initiative will be held:
When: Thursday, February 5, 2015 from 1:00 – 1:30 pm
Where: San Pablo Avenue at Market Street
Speakers: Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, City Attorney Barbara Parker, City Councilmember At-large Rebecca Kaplan and Public Works Director Brooke Levin
