Dump Stoppers

Main Content

garbage pileWe created Dump Stoppers with our partners in 2003 to clean up county-owned forests.

An increase of illegal dumpsites has taken its toll on forest lands in Clackamas County over the years. This continuing problem is so significant that it has led to the closure of some recreation areas in the county.

The Dump Stoppers program has proven highly successful.

Every year, Dump Stoppers removes over 100,000 pounds of waste from our forests. This waste includes cars, tires, scrap metal, and hazardous material.

We need your help with Dump Stoppers program. Call us if you see or suspect illegal dumping on federal, county, or industrial timber company lands.
