The Town of Dalhousie is very concerned about illegal dumping on town and private properties. Construction material, tires, and other unwanted waste are not to be disposed of near the marina, behind the fire station, on Sunset Drive or any other property. Such waste can be disposed of at the Restigouche Transfer Station in Campbellton (789-2111) and LCL Excavation in Charlo (684-3453). Recycling items can be disposed of at Blue Recycling Containers in the area.
Illegal dumping is harmful to the environment, costs taxpayers money, and sends a message that illegal activity is tolerated in our neighbourhoods.
Provincial laws provide fines and or jail time for this crime. Any person(s) caught and charged with illegal dumping are subject to a fine of $500.00. The fines can go up to as much as $50,000.00 for individuals. Any company(s) caught performing this crime can be charged with fines ranging from $1,000.00 to $1 million dollars.
Help us keep our community clean and safe by properly reporting all incidents of abandoned garbage or witnessing illegal dumping. We all need to take illegal dumping seriously.
