Illegal dumping, also known as open dumping, includes the improper disposal of solid waste through depositing, dumping or abandoning waste in ditches, along roadways and on others' property.
Old tires, appliances, construction and demolition waste, trash, and even hazardous chemicals are thrown into Iowa's waterways, dumped along waterways and discarded in remote rural areas or vacant areas within Iowa communities.
Illegal dumping impacts the environment, the character of neighborhoods and the quality of life of local residents. It causes safety hazards to the public and costs local governments millions of dollars every year in cleanup costs.
