Alameda's Sandbag Station

To help Alamedans prepare for storm season, Public Works opens its sandbag station and provides up to five (5) free sandbags for Alamedans who can show proof of residency. The sandbag station is open from December 4 to December 15.  Alameda residents requesting sandbags outside of these dates should contact Public Works at (510) 747-7900 to receive instructions on where to retrieve them. 


Days and Times:     
Monday through Friday - Noon to 1:00 p.m.



On Lexington Street just off West Tower Avenue (old Alameda Naval Air Station)



Please note that the sandbag station is closed during storms, as staff are occupied with storm-related service requests from the public, Alameda Police, and others.


Alameda residents can receive up to five (5) free sandbags after showing proof of residency, such as an Alameda Municipal Power bill or current driver’s license with an Alameda address.  Some sandbags are already filled, although residents should be prepared to fill their own.  If you have any questions or comments, please call Public Works at 510-747-7900 between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.  By working together, Alameda residents and Public Works can help lessen the impacts of storms this season.
