Illegal Dumping

Don't tolerate illegal dumping. Disposing of grass clippings, shrubs, and household goods on public or private lands is ILLEGAL. Violators may be subject to a $1,000 fine and/or six months in jail. Deserts and canyons are not the place to dispose of yard waste, household goods and other debris.
