Stanislaus County has recently allocated $100,000 towards a Community Cleanup pilot program to clean up trash illegally dumped in alleys.
The County has recently allocated $100,000 towards a Community Cleanup pilot program targeted at cleaning up trash illegally dumped in the alleys of unincorporated communities. Through this program the County hopes to team up with community volunteers to organize several community-led cleanups. The County will assist these community-led cleanups by funding the cost dumpster rental and, in some instances, heavy equipment.
If you are interested in coordinating a community-led cleanup please contact Patrick Cavanah, Senior Management Consultant at (209) 525-6333 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. A cleanup application can be found here.
The Keep Stan Pilot Program will continue through June 2020 or until all allocated funding has been used. Community Cleanup requests will be considered on a first-come first-served basis.
In addition to the community cleanups, a portion of the $100,000 will go towards other activities such as outreach, education, piloting long-term strategies to prevent illegal dumping, and a service aimed at assisting our public utility providers. The pilot program will continue through June 2020 or until all allocated funding has been used.
If you come across illegal dumps or other potential code enforcement issues please report it using the Countyâ€™s GoRequest smartphone app, Customer Service Center found at www.stancounty.com, or by phone at 1-877-227-7478
