-- it's inappropriate for human waste or feces to be on the streets or anywhere near, you know, where people live. >> reporter: she is chief of staff for rebecca kaplan city council member and chair of the public works committee. she says there's a reason public works has struggled to respond quickly to illegal dumping reports. an aging fleet of dump trucks. >> they were older trucks breaking down. >> reporter: today kaplan pushed through a plan to buy or lease at least one new dump truck as quickly as possible. the city will buy three others down the road and now instead of dummy cameras posted in dumping hot spots, working cameras. >> high resolution cameras so we can have the evidence to go after these people who are illegally dumping. >> reporter: the city has also given the green light to a reward program that gives cash to whistle-blowers who report illegal dumping. it's not clear when that new dump truck will come in.

the board and on your home screen. a single crowd hopes so, too. >> we are trying to create a counter-culture to that. >> love to see just more people being willing and open to actually talking to you. >> reporter: tournament of roses kpix 5. >> time is 4:53. samsung's reputation is at stake after their galaxy note 7 smartphone was taken off the market. how it could benefit apple. ,, ,,,,,,,,,,
