Do your part, and report littering and dumping. Keep these do’s and don’ts in mind:
1. DO NOT engage the dumper: don’t yell, reprimand or state your intention to tell the authorities. You don’t want to get yourself in a bad situation!
2. DO take down all pertinent information: the incident date and time, license plate number, vehicle description, incident location, description of the dumper, the material dumped and any other details you think may help.
3. DO tell a local official: Third party littering websites are not monitored by officials and won’t help catch those involved.
Reporting illegal littering and dumping sites helps officials build a case, which can lead to citations and fines. Knowing where people go to dump trash can help organizations protect and clean up littering sites. But if no one reports seeing anything, no one can help. The offender won’t ever have to face the consequences, and the public gets stuck with the bill. Do your part, and report littering in Nevada!
