San Jose, like other cities in the Bay Area, is seeing a spike in illegal dumping.
And it’s plaguing one neighborhood especially–and the city is responding.
The Burbank neighborhood near Buena Vista Park has been hit by illegal dumping.
Neighbors tell KRON4 the city sent a couple of trucks out there recently, and they picked up a lot of stuff, but there is plenty more still there.
It’s not clear if the latest cleanup missed the items, or if they were dumped within the last couple of days, but KRON4 counted at least a dozen mattresses, other furniture, and trash on and around Douglas Street and Willard Avenue.
