dumped furniture in a field

Illegal dumping is a serious issue

Dumping materials into the storm drain or ditches on your street allows those materials to flow untreated to local creeks, streams and rivers. It’s also illegal! In Sacramento County and its incorporated cities, it is illegal to knowingly dump or discharge hazardous materials into the storm drain system and the Cities and/or Sacramento can impose fines on violators when they are caught.

Proper Disposal Methods

To report illegal dumping into storm drains, please call 311 immediately to report the dump site
