Illegal dumping is dumping of any waste, whether it is construction and demolition debris, furniture, appliances, trash, litter or landscaping cuttings, etc., upon any public right-of-way, City property or private property, without consent of the owner.
The Sanitation Department's Enforcement Rangers patrol daily to deter illegal dumping and investigate resident complaints. Community help is essential to catching and deterring illegal dumps.
The City encourages anyone who witnesses someone illegally dumping to report it to NOPD's Non-Emergency Report line at 504-821-2222. Illegal Dumping discovered after the fact should be reported via 311.
