Report littering and illegal dumping
You may have seen a person
in your neighborhood or someone in a truck dumping tires, furniture, or
construction material in an alley or on a vacant lot. It is called
illegal dumping and it is a crime.
Illegal dumping has a
significant impact on our neighborhoods, quality of life, safety, public
health, roads, waterways, wild life and the environment, economy and tourism.
The Division of Refuse
Collection has three Solid Waste Inspectors who investigate illegal dumping in
the City of Columbus.
Residents can assist our
Solid Waste Inspectors by helping to identify and prosecute illegal dumpers by:
a license number and description of the vehicle
a description of the dumper, including gender, race, age and approximate height
a description of what type of material has been dumped
the address of where the dumping took place
possible take photos or a video of the dumping while it is occurring.
