The Comox Strathcona Regional Solid Waste Board has recently implemented an Illegal Dumping Program. A new web page has been created in support of the program which can be found here. The information online includes a list of disposal fees for commonly dumped items, in order to dispel the myth that illegal dumpers do so because of the cost of tipping fees. To report illegal dumping in the Comox Strathcona Waste Management service area call 1-800-331-6007.
