Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Once again, shady contractors dumped a load of construction debris near the Folsom gate of Bernal Heights Park last night.
This morning our friends at Monkeybrains, our giga-awesome locavore ISP, captured the scene you see above. (Monkeybrains suggests checking the construction taking place on the 600 block of Peralta for a possible debris match. Note that this is merely one of many potential sources of the debris, NOT an accusation.)
Meanwhile, Neighbor Regina, who lives near the top of Folsom Street, was dismayed to find yet another trash pile dumped near her home. “My palms are sweating, I’m so mad,” she said this morning.
In response, she sent this email to Eric Andersen, the manager who oversees Bernal Heights Park for the SF Recreation and Parks Department:
It’s your favorite homeowner!
I’ve cc’d Todd Lappin, who manages Bernalwood. I figured you two should have each other’s contact info.
The dumpers have struck again.
In your honest opinion, what can we do about this? Is there a way to gate off that parking lot between certain hours?
I still haven’t had any luck with Joey at DPW regarding maintenance of their property. I feel like making this section look nicer will deter dumpers. If an area looks ignored, why not dump some trash there? Is there anyone else there who can help?
