PA Environment Digest Blog -Cameras made available through the Keep PA Beautiful Surveillance Camera Loan Program caught illegal dumping of electronics waste as it happened at a Recycling Center in Millersburg Borough, Dauphin County.
The perpetrators were caught and cited for illegal dumping and were ordered to pay a fine and restitution.
Leaving items at recycling facilities that are not accepted is considered theft of service or illegal dumping.
Illegal dumping is not only encourages more dumping and is detrimental to the environment. It also imposes a financial burden on our local municipalities, as they are often the ones left to clean up the mess.
