A HEALTH CONCERN FOR THE COMMUNITY

Littering and the illegal dumping of garbage, hazardous waste, and commonly used materials are a reoccurring problem that presents serious environmental and public health concerns for the residents of Monterey County, CA.

  • It is not only an eyesore;
  • It is a possible fire hazard, and
  • May contain dangerous hazardous materials and chemicals;
  • It is contaminating our environmental, our water sources, and our crops;

  • It is a huge cost to all the taxpayers, Monterey County, and our partners to investigate the dump site and mitigate clean-up.
