Illegal Dumping

Roadside Dumping Costs Us All

Roadside dumping is illegal. Tax dollars badly needed for other programs pay for the clean up and proper disposal of these wastes.

Witnesses to roadside dumping should record the following information and report it to their local Works Department:

  • Vehicle licence plate number, colour and make of vehicle or general description
  • Location, time of day, and date of dumping
  • Basic description of dumped wastes

Local municipal bylaws and provincial environmental protection laws apply to anyone who dumps waste materials illegally.

Contact us and provide the location name of the municipality the infraction occurred.
