Great news! Last week I announced a free amnesty bulk dumping project to take place across East Oakland April 12-16th. The response was instant enthusiasm from residents and city officials. People are excited about a tangible program that can help residents and give illegal dumpers a legal place to drop their items. We heard from people all over the city wanting to see the bins in their neighborhoods.
So much so that I reached out to Ken Houston and the East Oakland Beautification Council and asked that them to partner with me.
Thanks to Ken Houston, Councilperson Reid, Schaff, Kernighan, and Kalb donated boxes and we are pleased to announce 4 new locations where boxes will be available for dumping in East Oakland during the project
- 8055 Collins drive
- 800 77th Ave
- 750 Louisiana Street
- 10500 San Leandro Street
The original sites are still confirmed for:
- International & 56th Ave
- 66th Ave & Fenham
- 5800 block Foothill Blvd
- Eastmont Area on 73rd / MacArthur
- Parkridge Drive / cross Street Skyline
- Mountain Blvd between Kuhnle & Mountain View
This brings the number of LEGAL bulk dumping sites to 10!
I am excited about this project and look forward to celebrating our collective success!
Always on Your Behalf,
City Councilmember Desley Brooks
