​Litter and Illegal Dumping

 ** Please note, if you live within the City of Charlotte, the City will take the lead on investigation of illegal dumping within the City's Corporate Limits. **


Disposing of trash and recycling in an unauthorized area, such as an open field, or the streets is illegal dumping, also known as littering. 


Where can I take material for proper disposal? To any of the County's four full-service drop-off centers.  Fees could apply.


If someone illegally dumps on your property, you are now the responsible party. Secure your property by blocking or gating roads.


Call 911 and report the activity, or contact the municipality where the violation occurred using the information below.
