See it, Snap it, Send it!

You can make a difference everyday too. Illegal dumping is a serious matter, reporting violators is the first step in enforcing the law. It's illegal to dump trash of any kind anywhere in the city, there are hefty fines that come with it if caught. Help us, help you by reporting illegal dumpers in action. If you see illegal dumping while it is in progress, snap a photo and send it to SBDirect@SBCity.org, along with detailed information as to where it is happening, the time of day, and description of the vehicle used and violators. However, please do not put yourself at risk for any reason. Let's stop them before they do it again. Report it!
