Stop illegal dumping with LiveView Technologies
Our security company offers cost-effective mobile surveillance units that aid in illegal dumping prevention. These units can be stationed anywhere there is an issue with waste management—from back alleys to open fields and street corners.
The units are armed with cameras, lights, and a two-way speaker to help deter dumping and will log evidence if it does happen. Furthermore, our advanced analytics can help identify cars or humans within designated areas and respond to them. For example, lights can be switched on, a recorded warning can play, or you can log in live to the unit and talk to any intruders through your phone.
What is it?
Illegal dumping is the disposal of trash or waste at a location without permission. Unlike littering, which is typically small or single items, dumping can exceed thousands of pounds in concentrated areas.LEARN MORE
Illegal dumping is costly
Depending on the location in the United States, illegal dumping fines can cost several thousand dollars. However, it costs local governments, and in turn taxpayers, much more to deal with—think in the millions.
For example, the City of Camden, New Jersey faced a chronic dumping problem that was costing the city $4.5 million per year in tipping fees. That does not include the workers’ salaries or the equipment fees that are needed for cleanup. Fortunately, Camden found LiveView Technologies.

It’s harmful to the environment
Companies and individuals often use illegal dumping as a way to avoid landfill tipping fees for larger items like building materials, discarded furniture, chemical containers, and more. However, in places not prepared for the waste, the dumping generates health hazards for residents, pets, and the environment.
Improperly discarded waste can pollute the land and inhibit good vegetation from growing.
