What if I see someone illegally dumping junk, trash or debris?

Call the police department immediately! Try to get a good description of the person dumping, the vehicle that they were driving, and the vehicle license number. If you see illegally dumped trash after the fact and cannot provide a description of the responsible party, where the trash is located will determine how it is to be removed.

If the debris is located on public property i.e.: street, sidewalk, alley, or other City-owned property, call the Public Works Department at (707) 968-2658.

For dumping on a vacant lot or private property, call the Building Department at (707) 967-2779. If someone dumps on your property, you will ultimately be responsible for the removal of the items.
