There have been roughly 118,352 reported instances of human
fecal matter spotted on San Francisco streets since 2011 as
California works to stem the tide of poop coursing through the
Golden State, an April Forbes report noted.
OpenTheBooks.com plotted all reports of human waste in the city
over the past eight years. Auditors at OpenTheBooks used
latitude and longitude address coordinates of all cases closed
by the San Francisco Department of Public Works.

More than 70 percent of all of the cases noted in the report
occurred in 10 neighborhoods. Tenderloin registered the most
cases, with 30,863 public feces incidents occurring in the
historic San Francisco area. South of Market (23,599), Mission
(19,150), Civic Center (6,232) and Mission Dolores (4,096) round
out the top five neighborhoods with the highest number of cases
reported, according to the report.
San Francisco spent more than $40 per resident to clean up its
streets for the 2016-2017 fiscal year. The cost for the 2017-
2018 fiscal year jumped to nearly $54 million from $35 million
in the 2016-2017 fiscal year, the San Francisco Chronicle
reported in 2018. 2019 is expected to hit nearly $60 million.

Demonstrators gather near Super Bowl City to protest San
Francisco’s response to homelessness on Feb. 3, 2016.
The poop reports have become a matter of national discussion
recently as local California politicians admit the city has a
problem. “There is more feces on the sidewalks than I’ve ever
seen growing up here,” San Francisco Mayor London Breed told a
reporter in 2018. “That is a huge problem and we are not just
talking about from dogs — we’re talking about from humans.”
Breed, a Democrat, commissioned an operation called the “poop
patrol” in 2018 to remove the masses of homeless excrement.
The operation will serve as a compliment to the city’s Pit Stop
public toilet program. The city allotted $1.05 million in its
most recent budget to construct five additional public toilets,
bringing the total Pit Stops in the city to 22. But many of the
public toilets are only in operation until the late afternoon,
leaving the homeless with few decent options overnight.
San Francisco, a city with a population of 864,816 between 2016-
2017, spent four times as much on cleaning than Chicago, which
had a population of over 2 million people, according to a policy
analysis report commissioned by San Francisco.
