"How do I report illegal dumping?"

Litter and illegal dumping of garbage, tires, mattresses, and hazardous waste items is a problem in our valley.  The Salinas Valley is one of the most beautiful spots in California yet a trip on area roadways can reveal alleyways, medians, roadsides, and parking lots strewn with litter. Litter is not only an eyesore, it poses health risks, impacts our waterways, decreases our quality of life, and is costly to cleanup. To report a litter problem or illegal dumping, we recommend that you first contact the public works department for your city at the numbers listed above.  If the dumping occurs on county roadways (most rural areas are overseen by the County of Monterey), please call Monterey County Public Works at 831-755-4800 and report it.  

Public works staff members are often working “out in the field” and may not be able to take your call right away. When you call be prepared to leave a telephone message with the following:

  • Your Name
  • A telephone number where you can be reached
  • The location or closest address or cross street to the site of the litter or dumping
  • The type of litter or material you have observed
  • Any other information you might find relevant


Please never attempt to touch or handle a hazardous waste material by yourself.  If you come upon a questionable item or container during non-business hours, you can call the Monterey County non-Emergency Dispatch at 831-769-8888.  If at any time there is a hazardous waste or materials spill that is life threatening or a presents an immediate safety hazard or danger of smoke, gas release, or fire, please call 911 immediately.
