How does the Town minimize illegal dumping?

The Town regularly monitor areas which have historically had dumping issues. We use whatever means necessary to identify the offenders and fine them in accordance with Massachusetts State Law and Town Bylaws.  We would encourage all citizens to report offenders as well as engage the cooperation of our citizens for the success of the program.
