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:
- Report it online
- Call 3-1-1
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.
If Miami-Dade County provides waste service to your residence, consider your options instead of dumping materials illegally:
- Request a Bulky Waste Pickup
- Deliver your items to a Trash & Recycling Center
- Visit a Home Chemical Collection Center
Private contractors can pay a per-ton disposal fee to have materials delivered to Miami-Dade County sites.
