Cleveland cracking down on illegal dumping

Cleveland cracking down on illegal dumping

(Cleveland) – Dump your trash in Cleveland and the city’s going to come after you.

Mayor Frank Jackson and members of his administration have announced increased efforts to attack illegal dumping in the city’s neighborhoods.

Using a state illegal dumping law, Cleveland Police presented a recent investigation to the Cuyahoga County Grand Jury. On Monday they returned a felony indictment for illegal dumping against William Daniel. Daniel is accused of operating an illegal dump at 275 East 131st Street.

Whenever possible, Jackson says they will seek felony indictments to hold illegal dumpers accountable for their actions. Illegal dumping threatens the health of our residents and forces the city to use limited resources to inspect these properties and often facilitate the clean-up. 

Jackson also said Tuesday that illegal dumping impacts the overall quality of life of those who live, work and play in Cleveland.
