What is Illegal Dumping?

Illegal dumping is disposal of waste in an unpermitted area. It is also referred to as "open dumping," "fly dumping," and "midnight dumping" because materials are often dumped in open areas, from vehicles along roadsides, and late at night. Illegally dumped wastes are primarily materials that are dumped to avoid either disposal fees or the time and effort required for proper disposal. These materials typically include:

  • Construction and demolition waste such as drywall, roofing shingles, lumber, bricks, concrete, and siding
  • Abandoned automobiles, auto parts, and scrap tires
  • Appliances or "white goods"
  • Furniture
  • Yard waste
  • Household trash
