Addressing Illegal Dumping: Protecting Our Natural Heritage

It wasn't until I publicly shared my meticulously compiled map, showcasing 450 instances of trash accumulation, that the County Supervisors finally took notice and acted. My insistence on introducing a Rewards program led to its establishment, albeit with a mere $500 reward. This amount hardly reflects the seriousness of the issue or the level of concern expected from our elected officials. Consider this: would the average person be willing to sacrifice valuable workdays to attend court proceedings for the sake of convicting illegal dumpers for a $500 reward? Probably not. However, raise that reward to $2,500.00 plus, and you'll see a significant shift in public engagement and commitment to resolving this pressing environmental concern.
