Illegal Dumping

Illegal dumping is a serious and growing problem. It's not just a township beautification issue, it's an issue that can have many other effects on the environment and on residents.

When you contact us regarding illegally dumped garbage, one of our Township staff members will investigate the complaint. If the garbage is on Township property, Township staff will clean up the items.

If the garbage is on private property, such as a vacant lot, we will enforce Township bylaws relating to the unlawful dumping or accumulated garbage. Call 613-347-1166 to report illegal dumping, or email.
