Illegal dumping like this is a problem at parks throughout town, and along the sides of the road through the newer and developing areas. It looks hideous, and creates an unhealthy atmosphere.
There are anti-litter by-laws. The Town enforces two of them. The first is #50-91, described as being for the offense of dumping on “privately owned land, or land owned by the municipality.” The second is 115-2005 referring to dumping along the highway, or ‘road allowances. Both offenses carry fines. Members of the public can fill out a complaint form online here.
Councillor Mike Cluett responded to the tweet saying crews should be cleaning it up today. The Region of Halton is maintaining a regular garbage collection schedule despite holiday Monday.
