Illegal Dumping

By definition, illegal dumping is depositing solid waste (trash, garbage, junk, yard waste, leaves, construction debris, demolition debris, furniture, appliances, or tires) at a location other than a legally permitted facility. This issue may be directed to the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) or the Department of Transportation (DOT). If this is a complaint regarding the dumping of bulk items (furniture, appliances, tires, carpeting, construction/demo debris, yard waste, landscape debris) along a COUNTY ROAD, please see the topic entitled "DEBRIS PICKUP" to submit a complaint with DOT.
