New Dedicated Team Targets Debris Removal on Public Property

Debris Response Team-6

The City has established a new dedicated team to respond to complaints associated with debris left on public property, including along roadsides, trails and creeks as well as in parks and around public buildings. The Debris Response Team (DRT) will remove debris proactively through a routine inspection program as well through service requests generated by community members.  

DRT will work closely and coordinate activities with several City departments, including Housing & Community Services, Police, Fire and Water through the Homeless Encampment Assistance Program (HEAP) to ensure its actions are within HEAP protocols and within the restrictions of a preliminary court injunction.

The DRT crew consists of four dedicated full-time staff members and a supervisor who have been reassigned from other duties within the Transportation and Public Works Department to focus solely on removal of debris from the public right of way. 

How to Request Service

In order to make reporting easy, community members may request DRT services in the following ways.
