The goal of this approach is to design a physical environment to promote positive behavior and reduce or eliminate criminal activity. Click here for easy CPTED tips and resources.
Removing Dumping from Your Property
Junk Haulers can be hired to remove illegally dumped items. Authorized junk haulers with San Rafael business licenses can be found through the Business License database. If hiring from haulers not on the list, ensure the hauler will provide a dump receipt to verify proper disposal. Don’t hire anyone that won’t verify that they took it to the dump!
