Illegal Dumping

A surveillance program to combat illegal dumping is being implemented across the province by the Multi Materials Stewardship Board (MMSB). This program has had much success in several towns across our province. Funding (allocated from MMSB) provides cameras, training and tools to ensure that this problem is addressed quickly and effectively.

NorPen has been successful in obtaining funding through this program. Cameras have been installed in strategic places on the Northern Peninsula where illegal dumping has been identified.

It cost nothing for residents to drop off waste and very little for businesses. Yet, this problem is still happening. Fines under the province's Environmental Protection Act can reach as high as $10,000 for illegal dumping.

Hopefully, residents will reconsider their actions and realize that not only does illegal dumping harm our environment and our tourism - it carries a hefty fine.

Attention Towns and Communities

If illegal dumping is an issue in your area, this is the opportunity to partner with NorPen. NorPen has the staff and resources to implement and oversee the program. It will be the responsibility of the Town to provide the travel cost to conduct this program.

Upon identifying illegal dumping sites in your area, NorPen will develop a budget and present it to the Town. At that time, the Town would make the final decision.

Also, if Towns want to purchase cameras, NorPen will provide training free of charge. If you are interested in participating in this program, please contact us via email or call us at (709) 454-3110.
