Community Clean Up Program

The TNRD is taking steps to reduce the impact of illegal dumping and to raise awareness about the environmental impacts associated with it through our new Community Clean Up program, launched as part of the new Pay-as-you-Throw waste collection. Our new Community Clean Up program includes:

  • Increased monitoring

The TNRD is working with provincial conservation officers to monitor existing dumpsites and catch illegal dumpers in action. We're also mapping well-known dumping sites for future clean up operations.

  • An illegal dumping hotline

Residents are asked to report illegal dumping along with helpful details including the location of illegal dumpsites, time, date and the license plate numbers of any vehicles involved. To report illegal dumping call the TNRD at 1-877-377-8673 or call the BC Ministry of Environment's 24-hour Report a Poacher or Polluter (RAPP) hotline at 1-877-952-RAPP (7277).

  • Support for Community Clean Ups!

Talk to your local service group, neighbours or friends and family about organizing a Community Clean Up in your area. We'll support your efforts by providing free garbage bags and by waiving tipping fees for waste collected from illegal dumpsites on public property. We will also help with larger sites. Call us today at 1-877-377-8673 or email
