Pasco County fighting illegal dumping



Leaders say you can email your dumping pictures or videos to


Illegal dumping has hit a record in Pasco County.  It's gotten so bad, county leaders are rolling out a new program designed to catch those who are dumping trash along county roads.

County commissioner Mike Moore says since October they’ve had 143 complaints for illegal dumping.


They are starting the initiative called #PascoProud -- if you see illegal dumping post pictures and videos of the perpetrator using that hashtag.

County commissioners are hoping #PascoProud will help them crack down.  County officials will turn the pictures and videos to the Pasco Sheriff to help in criminal investigations.  Illegal dumping could result in a penalty up to a third degree felony.
