Over 20,000 illegal dumping cases were reported to Oakland Public Works in 2013. One of the goals of the EOBC is to cut illegal dumping in half within the “footprint” by the year-end, beautifying the City of Oakland. With the collective efforts of the EOBC, this is occurring now and will continue until this goal is realized. Since its inception, the EOBC has successfully implemented clean-up programs and has identified four specific locations or “adopted spots”. East Oakland Beautification Council (EOBC) is impacting illegal dumping in a positive way with amnesty Trash Collection projects that have resulted in successful mass clean-up efforts in Districts 5, 6, and 7; creating a “footprint” for other Cities undergoing the same challenge.
