Illegal Dumping Sites

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, so couples are going to want to plan a romantic date to celebrate their love. Valentine’s Day is a day for couples to let go of the stresses they deal with on a daily basis and focus all their attention on each other, so they are going to need to do something fun. Often times, romantic dates will lead couples to nice restaurants, a movie, and perhaps a stroll in the park. However, there is a high probability that the romantic bliss that couples seek to enjoy on their dates will be tragically ruined by the stench of illegal dumpsites.

The number of illegal dumpsites has increased dramatically in recent years due to increased population, avoidance of disposal fees, and lack of environmental education. In highly populated cities, the sheer volume of illegal waste overwhelms the cities’ waste management services. This inevitably leaves public areas vulnerable to the occupation of hazardous trash. The combination of chemicals, medical waste, and non-biodegradable materials creates the perfect concoction needed to spread disease and odors. Illegal dumping pollutes everything around, water, land, and air. Unless action is taken, you can kiss your romantic stroll through the park goodbye!

Thankfully, there are a host of passionate people who want to launch an all-out assault against this heinous criminal activity.  Tools that aid in the success of stopping illegal dumping are uniquely designed illegal dumping cameras which specialize in both preventing would-be criminals from ever committing a crime and identifying criminals who do follow through with their illegal dumping, so that they can be apprehended. Cities need to clean up the streets and allow Valentine’s Day festivities to proceed without interruption, using illegal dumping cameras.

Illegal Dumping Sites Spread Disease within the Community

Illegal Dumping Sites Spread Disease within the Community

Illegal dumping, also known as “midnight” dumping, is the term used to describe disposing of waste in unauthorized areas.” Illegal dumping is an environmental crime and depending on the circumstances, this crime could be classified as a misdemeanor or even a felony and the fines can be quite heavy. Some people may think that illegal dumping should not even be classified as a crime and may seem like a dismissible act. However, this is an incredibly faulty conclusion. Illegal dumping is a serious matter because it negatively affects communities and the environment in numerous ways. One of which is the spread of disease.

The accumulation of waste at illegal dumping sites exponentially spreads disease to people in the surrounding area. The reason for this is that illegal dumping sites provide the perfect habitat for disease spreading creatures such as mosquitoes and rodents. Mosquitoes can breed 100 times faster than usual in stagnant water, and dump sites with discarded tires can hold large quantities of stagnant water. Additionally, illegal dumping sites will contaminate any source of water which it comes into contact with. This means that illegal dumping can ruin rivers or ponds, thus making it difficult for communities to access clean water. This also endangers the wildlife. Therefore, illegal dumping spreads disease within communities and is a direct threat to the health of a community.

How do we stop illegal dumping?

The answer: illegal dumping cameras. With so many places where illegal dumping can occur, it is impossible to have an adequate number of hired personnel to monitor all the potential dump sites. But if a community utilizes illegal dumping cameras, they can have eyes and ears in every necessary remote location with minimal personnel. These remote cameras are specially designed to stop illegal dumping.

What is your community doing to stop the spread of disease caused by illegal dumping?

Clean Up Illegal Dumping

Clean Up Illegal Dumping

The cleanliness of a neighborhood plays an enormous role in the life of that neighborhood. Residents of clean neighborhoods reap immense social, psychological, and health related benefits. Regarding social benefits, when residents communally invest in the cleaning and maintenance of their neighborhoods, the pristine condition of their neighborhood can become a great source of pride and encourage more residents to take ownership of their community’s well-being. Large amounts of illegal dumping in neighborhoods is incredibly hazardous to the neighborhood residents because of sharp scrap metal and the fostering of disease spreading rodents and insects. Combating illegal dumping and maintaining the cleanliness of a neighborhood is crucial for families to enjoy the outdoors without fear of their children being injured by stray trash. Cleaning up a neighborhood will provide immediate health benefits to families as it will encourage outdoor play and relieve stress.

The psychological benefits of eliminating illegal dumping are staggering. A study done in Philadelphia showed that the cleanliness of a community has a profound impact on the mental health of its residents, regardless of economic status. When comparing the mental health of residents in impoverished communities, residents, whose community was cleaned and given new vegetation, reported a significant decrease in depression. The presence of illegal dumping in a community creates a sense of hopelessness and defeat in communities because it demonstrates that no one is confronting the crime that is plaguing residents.

If a community wants to show that it cares about its future and wants to preserve its dignity, then illegal dumping must be stopped. Although, such a task is nearly impossible to accomplish by man-power alone. The best solution to cleaning up the streets and keeping them clean is using  Illegal Dumping Cameras. These are specially designed cameras which target illegal dumping. Clean up the neighborhood and stop illegal dumping.

Illegal Dumping Attracts Crime

Illegal Dumping Attracts Crime

Illegal dumping is an unsightly scene. Fly dumping sites breed bacteria, lower home and business property values, and pose a danger to families living nearby. Did you know illegal dumping grounds also increase the crime to the affected community?

In some instances, the additional crime is more dumping such as abandoned trash, tires, and mattresses in a vacant lot. People assuming a few more tires or broken pieces of furniture added to the junkyard will not make much of a difference, thus adding to the fly dumping pile.

An essay on the effects of illegal dumping to Lawrence, PA states that one improperly disposed article can cause a “chain reaction” to your community in many harmful ways.

Amongst this “chain link” of fly dumping, is the attraction of illegal drugs and drug manufacturers. Harmful and highly dangerous narcotics are often the types of drugs that are drawn in by illegal dumping. Drug related articles found thrown into the garbage pile at the site are meth lab materials and heroin needles.

In addition to destroying community pride, fly dumping also attracts gatherings of rowdy people that behave in an unwanted manner. Disorderly teenagers often find illegal dumping sites to be “fun” hangout sites and sometimes take to vandalizing nearby homes and parks as part of their group activities

So, what are communities to do to prevent this chain reaction? They cannot simply believe the perpetrators will suddenly stop fly dumping and clean up the litter. Communities must make an investment in an illegal dumping prevention program.

  • Educate the Community
  • Enable the Community
  • Equip your Staff
  • Enforce the Laws
  • Use Evidence & Prosecute with Illegal Dumping Cameras

Such investments are necessary to protect the safety of the community and prevent other crimes in the neighborhoods. It is possible for the chain link of crimes to be broken. Break the link!
