Report Illegal Dumping, Earn Cash!

The Common Council has approved a tip hotline whereby callers can be eligible to receive reward money after anonymously providing information on incidents of illegal dumping of debris and/or hazardous materials. Illegal dumping includes dumping of items, brush, and/or materials on streets, sidewalks, parking lots, vacant lots, alleys, or at vacant properties. The 2011 city budget appropriated $25,000 in funding for the tip hotline, and on March 1 the Common Council voted to get the hotline up and operating. If you see or know of illegal dumping, call WeTip at 1-800-78-CRIME.

If the information provided leads to a conviction, you may be eligible for a reward up to $1,000. If you witness illegal dumping, please provide a detailed description of the vehicle(s) (license plate info, make/model, etc.) and the individual(s) involved. If possible, also provide a description of the items and/or material that was dumped. The hotline is answered by bilingual operators 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are taken for all crimes. All calls are anonymous, not just confidential.
