Prevent and report illegal dumping

Neighbors have been noticing extra litter and illegal dumping in North Willow Glen recently. Dumping trash and debris attracts more dumping, and preventing illegal dumping is a powerful way to keep our neighborhood looking beautiful.

One of the easiest ways to report illegal dumping is to use the My San Jose app. You can also report illegal dumping in San José by calling the Customer Contact Center at (408) 535-3500. If you witness dumping in progress, call the San José Police Department non-emergency line at (408) 277-8900.

To get rid of your own stuff, the City of San Jose does have resources available to help you get rid of bulky stuff:
  • Residents in single-family homes can have large items (such as mattresses, sofas, refrigerators, tires, and more) picked up curbside by their recycling collection company. Each pickup includes up to three large items.
  • Apartment and condominium residents with communal garbage dumpster service can contact their property managers or GreenTeam of San Jose directly to arrange for free junk pickup.
