The County of San Mateo has an app called "Report It! SMC" which can be downloaded to your smartphone or used on your desktop. The app allows citizens, residents, and visitors to report illegal dumping quickly and easily. Simply take a photo of illegally dumped items and submit your report from your phone! Once submitted, reports are sent directly to County staff to respond and address the issues.
