Request Tools for Volunteer Events

We unfortunately will not be able to service tool loans while the Alameda shelter-in-place ordinance is in effect in order to slow the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19).

We will resume tool loans for when the COVID-19 ordinances are lifted and we resume full operations.

We apologize for the disruption in our services, and thank you for your dedication to cleaning and greening Oakland.

To reach us with questions, comments, or feedback, please email

Under normal circumstances you would use this form to provide information about your event (who, what, where, when, why) and request tools from Oakland Public Works for your volunteer cleaning or greening project on City of Oakland land or right of way.

If you are requesting tools for group projects fo Creek to Bay Day, Earth Day, or MLK Day of Service, please do so through the event registration specific to each of those events.
