Illegal dumping negatively affects properties, businesses, and communities. Having trash on-site can also create health and safety issues for your visitors. Should someone become injured from items dumped on your property, as the business owner you may become liable for that injury. So what should you do to stop illegal dumping? Here are our top tips.


1. Fence Off the Property. 

Depending on the type of business, location, and practicality, you may be able to fence off the property to prevent entry and access to dumping.

2. Talk to the Perpetrators

If the dumping is frequent, it may indicate that the same person or persons are dumping. If the opportunity presents itself, simply asking them not to dump on your site may encourage them to find a more appropriate place to dispose of garbage. 

3. Get Police Involved

In most cases, law enforcement can’t do much about illegal dumping unless they catch the perpetrator in the act. They may, however, regularly patrol the area to help discourage the practice. 

4. Use Lifeline Proactive Video Monitoring
