Examples of items found dumpied at sites:

household debris, mattress, furniture, piles of cardboard, pallets, wooden shelf unit, hundreds of full bags of garbage, Styrofoam, paint cans, bottles full of black oil, tires, shopping carts, electronics, broken glass, homeless encampments, broken toilet, canned food. yardwaste, homeless encampments, broken concrete slabs, house chair, scooter, bbq grill parts; vacuum cleaner…

The first quarterly report is being developed with detailed stats, clean up highlights and the first prevention strategies that are being considered.
