Please be advised that the Highway 43 East Waste Commission, at
their Executive Meeting on Friday, October 29th, 2010,
discussed the issue of illegal dumping of garbage on public
roadways. The Commission encourages each and every
municipality to advise their resident's that this is illegal, and
further, any person caught doing this will be charged under the
Environmental Protection Act, Section 179(1), and fined up to
$250.00, Section 228(3)(a). Further, assistance from the
public is needed to identify individuals who may be illegally
dumping their waste.
The Commission will be placing ads in local papers to inform the
public. We wish to invite you to also place advertisements in
your newsletters, monthly utility invoices, on your website, etc.
to assist us with this issue.
