We have received complaints from private property owners i.e. churches & business’s & apartment complexes about “illegal dumping.”
The Ohio Revised Code defines it as:
” Under Ohio law, litter is any trash thrown, discarded or dropped by a person onto public property, private property not owned by the individual, or into Ohio’swaterways. The Ohio Revised Code prohibits littering, regardless of whether or not it was intentional. Numerous laws prohibit littering and illegal dumping.”
IF ANYONE sees another person(s) dumping trash on private property and/or into their dumpster – get vehicle information, including license #, description of individual dumping the trash and report it to: www.itsacrime.org or by calling 614-871-5322. If you feel comfortable you can report it to that private property office.
This illegal activity can cost the private property owner hundreds of dollars. There are proper ways to get rid of your trash. Please go to the web site above, call that number or call the city @ 614-645-3111 and ask questions.
