BOONE COUNTY HEALTH & SANITATION KEEP BOONE COUNTY BEAUTIFUL
TAKE A STAND FOR YOUR LAND
Boone County Health and Sanitation and the Boone County Board of Health have partnered with Keep Boone County Beautiful and the Boone County Landfill to address illegal dumping related issues. This effort is part of the state-wide “Take A Stand For Your Land” program that was originally developed in Boone, Appanoose and Linn Counties.
Each year Boone County and our local communities spend taxpayer monies to cleanup illegal dump sites. Illegal dumping not only costs taxpayers, these activities threaten to contaminate the natural environment and put public employees at risk of being injured while cleaning up illegally dumped materials.
Report Illegal Dumping: Please report illegal dump sites that you find within Boone County, especially if you observe illegal dumping in progress. If you observe someone in the process of illegal dumping, please call 911 to report.
Illegal dumping is a crime! Otherwise, if all you need to do is report an illegal dump site, a toll-free number has been established that will direct your call to the Boone County Illegal Dumping Enforcement Officer:
You can also report by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Try to record as much information as possible before you call. This information can include: location of dump site, description of items, date and time observed, and if applicable – vehicle/license number and description of persons involved. This information will help the investigating officer(s) and can help lead to an arrest and conviction. Boone County has, and will continue to, prosecute illegal dumping violators.
Help Raise Awareness About Illegal Dumping: You can help raise awareness about the negative issues associated with illegal dumping. Download the brochure below and share with friends and family. You can also request a free bumper sticker(s) to help promote the illegal dumping reporting number. Businesses and workplaces can also help by downloading the poster below and putting it in your place of work where employees and customers can see it.
