Dumping household garbage in parks & open spaces is illegal
All residents are responsible for properly disposing of their household garbage and their pet waste at their home.
Deliberately dumping household garbage, masks, gloves or wipes in parks, public spaces, parking lots and private property or along the roadside is illegal.
Bring them home! Single-use masks, gloves and wipes go in your clear bag garbage and never in the blue box or down the toilet.
