Scavenging is illegal in the City of Newport Beach because it decreases the City's state-mandated recycling rate. Scavenging is the act of unauthorized persons going through refuse containers, whether the containers are located on city or private property.

To report scavenging in your area, contact the Police Department's non-emergency line at (949) 644-3717.

Please be prepared to provide as much information as possible such as a vehicle license plate, if a vehicle is present, and a description of the individual(s) involved in the illegal activity.
