About this Spot

Ashby Offramp at Shellmound on the Eastern side of the highway.

It's best to join an organized cleanup, before working solo in this area.

Trash Note

Most of the litter is abandoned campsites, and waste middens from the camps themselves. Trash also blows in from the highway. Dumping, usually construction waste, is also common in this area.

Useful items like wood, poles or other building materials, should be left, or stacked at the edge of trash piles so they can be recovered.

Most active camps have collections of clothes or parts that may appear to be trash, but are still prized. Litter is often mixed in with these collections.

When working near an active camp, talk to residents to get guidance about what can be taken away.


Avoid cleaning active campsites unless you talk to the residents and get guidance from residents about what can be taken away. Potentially needles around homeless campsites.

Hazards & Safety

It's best to join an organized cleanup, before working solo in this area.

• Very fast traffic along Shellmound and Exit
• Stay off offramp and highway, stay off highway paved areas and at least 12' from moving traffic at all times.
• Frequent needles in this area.

Getting There & Parking

Parking is on the Eastern side of Shellmound as you are heading into Aquatic Park.

There is also parking on the Western side of Shellmound about a half-block South of the encampment, and on 67th St.

Trash Disposal

Caltrans removes trash piles on the first full work week of the month.

Trash piles should be staged off the right-of-way, near the freeway offramp so that it can easily be removed using a bobcat loader.
