Red Car Property: Persistent Dumpers

Photo: Red Car Property Neighbor #1,  November 3, 2015.  Yesterday, a neighbor moved the dishwasher out from under the tree where it was dumped a month ago, in the hopes it would make it easier for the owner to have someone pick it up.  (Click on photos to enlarge.)

We notified the Red Car Property owner's rep back on October 3, when the dishwasher first appeared along with a big pile of glass and other debris.

The dishwasher and pile of glass are where they were yesterday.  

The dishwasher tree has long been the favorite of a persistent dumper of computers, appliances and televisions.  If you see someone dumping, get a license plate, vehicle and person description.  Call 1-877-ASK-LAPD, non-emergency line and report it while it is happening.
