[ARCHIVED] ILLEGAL DUMPING

ILLEGAL DUMPING 

 

 

            Notice to all Rockland residents. 

 

The Rockland Board of Health Office has recently received increasing complaints regarding disposing of items illegally / improperly. 

 

Illegal dumping is against the law and offenders can be fined up to $15,000.00 per MGL 270 s16. It’s cheaper to dispose of items correctly.   

Residents who leave items curbside for free must remove item(s) within 48 hours, and dispose of properly.
