Residents Mobilize to Fight Illegal Dumping in Fresno

December 1, 2015

Fresno, CA

Residents of district 5 and district 7 are mobilizing to protect their communities from illegal dumping. This chronic problem plagues neighborhoods that are already overburdened by other pollution sources. In this video, we talk to a group of community leaders that have come together to clean-up their neighborhoods and demand action from city officials. This group is working to draft and propose a city ordinance that will directly work to prevent this illegal dumping problem.

CCEJN chairs the Fresno Environmental Reporting Network (FERN) project that has invested a lot of time and resources in dealing with the illegal dumping program.  We have worked with government agencies to draft illegal dumping source documents, language for an ordinance, among other things to get resources for the affected communities.  We will update on this issue as we move forward.  Stay tuned.
