If you see someone tossing a fast food bag out the window, that‚ illegal.
If you see someone dragging a couch into the desert off the side of the road, thats definitely illegal!
Do your part, and report littering and dumping. Keep these dos and donts in mind:
1. DO NOT engage the dumper: dont yell, reprimand or state your intention to tell the authorities. You dont want to get yourself in a bad situation!
2. DO take down all pertinent information: the incident date and time, license plate number, vehicle description, incident location, description of the dumper, the material dumped and any other details you think may help.
3. DO tell a local official: Third party littering websites are not monitored by officials and wont help catch those involved.
Reporting illegal littering and dumping sites helps officials build a case, which can lead to citations and fines. Knowing where people go to dump trash can help organizations protect and clean up littering sites. But if no one reports seeing anything, no one can help. The offender wont ever have to face the consequences, and the public gets stuck with the bill. Do your part, and report littering in Nevada!

If the dumping occurred on federal lands, call the Interagency Non-Emergency Dispatch: 702-293-8998.
