Report Illegal Dumping

Each month, many property owners, including the City, are faced with the high cost and burden of properly disposing of items that have been illegally dumped on unsuspecting property owners or on City property. 
 

If you are unsure of how to dispose of unwanted items such as old furniture, electronic devices and other household items, call Engineering Operations at 604-526-4691 and they can offer several ideas for proper disposal, including arranging a Special Pick Up Service for a small fee.  

There are also recycling centres that will take used TVs, computers and other electronic devices for free. If the items are usable, there are a number of charity organizations that will arrange a pick up for you. Click here to see what items the New Westminster Recycling Depot accepts.

For property owners who fail to dispose of discarded items from their property in a timely fashion, even if such items have been illegally dumped, the Unsightly Premise Bylaw No# 5969,1991, may be enforced, resulting in fines and other fees. 
 

Individuals caught illegally dumping items may be faced with a fine of $200 and/or other enforcement action.

If you observe someone illegally dumping, obtain as much information as possible, such as a description and licence number, and call Engineering Operations at 604-526-4691.
