Rewards Program

While ensuring residents have adequate resources and information on how to properly dispose of old items, deterring people from illegally dumping in the first place is a key component to addressing the issue.

A Rewards Program is forthcoming that will provide a monetary reward for those submitting tips on who is illegally dumping items. The program will pay out if the person in question ends up charged in the case.

The Rewards Program will be replenished with fines paid by those illegally dumping. While the program will pay tipsters when someone is charged in a case, some defendants will have the opportunity to enroll in the diversion program to avoid a potential conviction. That process includes admitting responsibility and other measures such as fines and community service.

Criminal littering or polluting can range in severity, coming as either a misdemeanor or felony case. The penalties can include time in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.

When submitting tips, please provide as detailed information as possible. Examples include:

  • Surveillance video or pictures
  • Name(s) of person involved
  • Witnesses
