Illegal Dumps

Illegal Dumps

The RDMW is not responsible for the clean-up of illegal dumps, but encourages the public to let the Manager of Operations know about them, with photographs and locational information, to post here regularly.  If you recognise any of the refuse and waste photographed, and have more information, please contact Patrick Donaghy, Manager of Operations, who will determine if anything can be done with that information by the RDMW or the Conservation Officer Service.  The public are encouraged to help keep North Island backroads free of refuse and contamination by using their local landfill and recycling facility.
