HELP INITIATE POSITIVE CHANGE AND PUT A STOP TO ILLEGAL DUMPING.
If anything please download the app to geo tag dirty locations such as an illegal dump in the forest, an abandoned car or garbage in your city. We are blessed to have non for profit organizations such as the Okanagan Forest Task Force using the app to find illegal dump spots and clean them up. By simply tagging these spots you help identify where it is so it can get it cleaned. If you wish to finish the job Clean the Creek creates a nice photo collage and easily posts to your Facebook (optional), post on the app for Kudos and to your profile.
Illegal dumping takes many forms such as dumping yard waste in a near by ditch, abandoning a vehicle, bush partys or camping leftovers or dumping household or construction waste in the forest. In every case, something is being placed where it doesn’t belong.
Negative Effects Of Illegal Dumping
Environmental damage – Illegal dumping of hazardous wastes contaminates soil and water.
Increased health risks – Abandoned and decaying garbage attracts animals, often disease carrying ones.
Encourages more dumping – Even small amounts of dumped garbage begets more garbage.
Increases fire risks – Dumped yard waste, broken glass and other wastes increase risk of forest fires.
Increased costs – Addressing abandoned garbage costs money and resources, which is passed onto taxpayers.
