CHP and Caltrans Clear Out Homeless Camp
Source: California Highway Patrol
We worked with Caltrans Central Coast (District 5) and cleared out a homeless encampment [Tuesday]. There was trash everywhere along the side of the freeway off ramp. If you happen to see an encampment please let us know. (805) 967-1234
The City of Santa Barbara contracts with Big Green. They were not involved in this opperation, but the City of Santa Barbara, Caltrans, Santa Barbara Police Department, and the CHP Santa Barbara collectively work together to keep these unsafe encampments from growing. We provide alternative county resource options because these encampments on the freeway are unsafe for pedestrians and motorist.
The clean up cost is upwards in the thousands of dollars, including damage to the property and possible exposures to employees who have to clean up these encampments.
