Illegal Dumping

Illegal dumping is a serious crime that can harm the environment and negatively impact neighborhood aesthetics. 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 you witness an illegal dumping incident in progress, call 911. Never confront someone who is dumping. Instead, try to get the vehicle license number or at least a description of the vehicle used to commit the crime.

If an instance of illegal dumping has already happened, call 311.

You can also report neighborhood problems and code violations using 311Direct, a mobile application. 311Direct can be downloaded for free in the iTunes store for Apple users or in the Google Play store for Android users.
