Illegal dumping occurs in numerous ways throughout Millcreek Township. Most people illegally dump their trash to avoid the costs of proper disposal. Illegal dumping can be anything from littering (throwing an empty can out your vehicle window), dumping household trash in rural areas or construction waste in an empty lot, placing your household garbage in your employer’s dumpster, and even placing your trash in your neighbor’s driveway on his pickup day. Whether you destroy the beauty of our environment or have someone else willingly or unknowingly pay for your costs of trash disposal, it’s still illegal dumping.
If you witness illegal dumping you can contact the Police Department at the non-emergency number 814-833-7777 and report your findings.
