Illegal Dumping

Illegal dumping is a serious crime that can harm our environment and make our neighborhoods look bad. Don’t try to confront an illegal dumper. Instead, write down details of the incident if you witness it, such as a description of the vehicle, vehicle markings or a license tag number.

To report an illegal dumping site on public or private property:

If you witness an illegal dumping incident in progress, call 911.

Avoid illegal dumping

Dumping things like tires, debris, old furniture and hazardous materials not only harms the environment and lowers property values, but results in millions of dollars spent on enforcement and cleanup costs.

Private contractors can pay a per-ton disposal fee to have materials delivered to Miami-Dade County sites.
