Help Stop Illegal Dumping!


Trash such as tires, appliances, garden chemicals, old furniture, electronics, construction debris, and even boats have been thrown on roadsides, stream edges, and into our forests. 

Items like these and the chemicals they contain can be dangerous for both people and the environment. The Columbia County DumpStoppers team cleans up illegal dumpsites on county property or right-of-way areas every year. But unfortunately, only about 5 percent of illegal dumpers are caught.

Having increased community awareness and reporting of suspicious activity increases the chances of catching individuals conducting illegal dumping. Get involved by reporting suspicious activities on public roads and public property, as these are the most common locations for illegal dumping activities. 

Help stop illegal dumping in our county!
