Oakland cracks down on illegal dumping
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Residents in Oakland are helping police crack-down on some big-time litter bugs. People have been taking pictures showing illegal dumping.
The new city effort is using photos and videos to track down illegal dumpers and make them pay.
City officials say photos showing the license plates of offenders are particularly helpful because they can track down the dumpers through their vehicle registration.
