Tom K. proposed this resource for to stop illegal dumping in Oakland.

Here is what the City of Oakland suggests:

"See It - Write down the dumper’s description: include gender, ethnicity, age, hair color, clothing, etc. Write down the vehicle description: include license plate number, color, make, model & approximate year, if known.

Report It - Call the Public Works Call Center at (510) 615-5566. Dumping in progress should be called in to Oakland Police Department non-emergency line (510)777-3333. OPD also provides an on-line report process at www.oaklandpolice.com for illegal dumping that is witnessed by a citizen, but is no longer in progress."

I applaud the app author for their intentions but at the same time, there is no need to reinvent the wheel. Seeclickfix.com already provides the same functionality AND Oakland Public Works already ties the data from it into their system and responds to reports. Its rather effective, check it out.

An App To Find Illegally Dumped Trash

Jozef Vodicka says he came up with the idea of TrashOut--an app and web site that lets you locate illegal dumps--after studying at universities in Finland and Singapore. He says he wanted "every country to be as clean as Finland or Singapore".His idea is simple: when you see trash somewhere, open the app, take a picture, describe the scene, and...

Given that this was an anonymous idea from the Code for Oakland events, we need someone to take it over as the author - any takers?

How about no illegal dumping as the goal. The dumping in my area of North Oakland, is mostly along the Lowell Street warehouse corridor, a historical gift from the golden era of rail - thanks Southern Pacific - and consists of general household trash that is presumably dumped there by illegal garbage haulers, most of it presumably comes from outside of Oakland or the immediate area. It would be a fascinating documentary since it all takes place under cover of night. Kickstarter expose' anyone?

Where (who) are most of the illegal dumpings coming from? Just residents, or small businesses, or serious commercial/industrial entities?

I want the city leaders and the media to educate the public the costs of illegal dumping, i.e. costs to abate the illegal dumpings that could be used for other service; the economic and quality of life impacts of illegal dumpings.
