Illegal Dumping

Trash, old appliances, mattresses, tires, furniture, oil, antifreeze and pesticides are a few of the things dumped on public lands, sidewalks, alleyways and waterways, putting human health and wildlife at risk. If you see people actively dumping items, do not confront them. Note the vehicle’s license plate number, make and model, items dumped and location. You can report this information to your local law enforcement.
