The costs to Local Government and industries associated with continuous illegally dumped wastes are significant. In recent years the County has spent one million dollars per year on cleanup, hauling, and disposal associated with dumping.
Without adequate revenue, the funding available to establish and maintain illegal dumping prevention programs is limited. These costs may be passed on to residents in the form of higher service fees or property taxes.
