Large-scale Illegal Dumping Incident in Hotspot Area

On April 8th, DPW received a 311 Service request from a resident reporting a “pile of roofing debris taking up three parking spaces” at 1347 Donner, one block from several of the hotspots. This is the same location as three previous recent incidents. A DPW Zone Supervisor responded and discovered the large pile of discarded roofing materials near the sidewalk. DPW notified the SFPD, the D.A.’s Office and the Office of the City Attorney.

The new pile is estimated at a total 10-12 tons of discarded shingles and old roofing materials, plus other debris such as tires and household items. The debris was tested for hazardous materials and the results found none. The cleanup was conducted on Monday morning, April 11th. This large-scale dumping incident is similar to the ten other incidents that DPW has been tracking since September 2010.
