Dumping trash in unauthorized locations can lead to a number of health and safety concerns and can become a stormwater problem. Improperly disposed waste can be picked up by storm water and carried into our local waterways, harming water quality. Illegal dumping also fosters a negative image in a community. People are much more likely to dump on property where a dump site already exists. Not to mention the high costs for clean-up can run into the thousands or even millions of dollars! When county workers clean up litter and illegal dumps, your tax dollars are spent to clean up somebody else's garbage and cannot be used for other, more urgent needs.
