Comox Strathcona Waste Management (CSWM) has launched a new program aimed at preventing illegal dumping across the region. Illegal dumping is a growing problem in the CSWM service area with more than 500 illegal dump sites documented since 2012. Illegal dumping harms the environment and can have serious, long-lasting impacts on our region.
As part of the program, two educational videos have been created to illustrate what constitutes illegal dumping, how it is posing a threat to our region and how to report an illegal dumper. The videos will be shared via social media and are available online at www.cswm.ca/illegaldumping.
