Illegal dumping is a crime and a blight on our neighborhoods.


The faster it is reported, the sooner enforcement and removal can begin. Provide as accurate a location as possible, address, or cross street nearest the pile.

Illegal dumping – also known as “midnight dumping” and “open dumping” is the disposal of trash generated at one location and disposed of at another location without legal permission.  This includes dumping yard waste, appliances, tires, and other garbage in dumpsters, vacant lots, and alleys. If you witness illegal dumping in progress, call 911. To report illegal dumping after the fact, contact 772-467-3794 or All information is confidential.
