Litter Control & Illegal Dumping

We clean and maintain 98 bus shelters, empty 310 litter bins and collect and dispose of items illegally disposed of or "dumped".

If you witness illegal dumping

  • Call Saanich Police at 250-475-4321.
  • Record the time and date.
  • Record the vehicle description, licence plate number and description of occupants.
  • Record what you saw.

Illegal dumping carries many negative impacts:

  • Ground contamination.
  • Health risks by exposure to harmful chemicals and disease through rodents.
  • Diminishes the aesthetic value of our community.
  • If the offenders aren’t caught, Saanich taxpayers pay to cover the removal and disposal costs.

Illegal roadside dumping carries a minimum $150 fine, plus removal and disposal fees. For more information see Streets & Traffic Regulation Bylaw
