BP Oil Spill Suggestion Box
May 31, 2010 – British Petroleum (BP) has finally opened a telephone hotline to take oil spill suggestions from the public. Whether the suggestions will be seriously considered by BP remains to be seen, but I am happy to report that I had a satisfactory experience when I checked out the Oil Spill Suggestion Hotline. When I called (281)-366-5511, the phone was actually answered by a live person (in my case, after only 2 rings) who was polite and actually seemed to be putting my information into a computer. The operator took my name, city and state of residence, zip code, telephone number, and email address. She then asked for my suggestion, and requested that I speak slowly so she could write it all down. In my case, it was easy to do because I was able to tell her that there were between 300-400 suggestions already written down here at BPOilNews.com. She asked me to repeat the web address twice, and thanked me for the information. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by the way the call was handled. I’m not ready to announce that BP is going to using public suggestions, because it may all be a PR ploy, but I am willing to suggest that anyone who has a good suggestion should call the hotline in addition to posting it here. The phone number for the BP Oil Spill Suggestion Hotline is (281)-366-5511.
