Pasco County Launches New Program 
For Catching Illegal Dumping Violators

            Watch, Report & Earn!

Pasco County’s Stormwater Management Division launched a new program to help identify people dumping trash illegally. The county’s new program rewards residents for reporting illegal dumping by identifying the violators as seen in the county’s caught-in-the-act videos. If a resident recognizes the violator in a video, the county is encouraging the resident to call the Pasco County’s Illegal Dumping Tip Line at 727-247-0567. For their effort in helping the county, the resident is eligible to receive a $50.00 cash reward for the tip if the violator is prosecuted. If caught, violators are subject to a $500.00 fine per day, per item plus possible cleanup costs. The $50.00 cash rewards are funded from these collected fines. 

Stormwater Management has set up more than a dozen hidden cameras to catch illegal dumpers in the act. These cameras have helped the county to prosecute some violators, but now with this new program, the county is asking the public for help in identifying violators. Stormwater is also using the news media and social media to help identify violators.
