I wanted to do a story on illegal dumping because I see trash everywhere in Oakland such as mattresses, TVs, and other kinds of junk. I want to tell people to not throw junk on the streets, even throwing out a piece of gum on the ground can influence how people treat their community. After this project, I learned that there are programs that reward people on reporting illegal dumping, and that will help make Oakland cleaner.
