Illegal dumping occurs when individuals or businesses deposit solid waste at a location other than a legally accepted facility. Common examples of illegal dumping include disposing of your trash in dumpsters or containers that you don’t own, leaving trash in abandoned public lots, polluting rural areas, or disposing of waste in unauthorized landfills. Unfortunately, Van Nuys has gained notoriety for the large number of complaints related to illegal dumps in the neighborhood. According to one report, Van Nuys recorded the second highest number of complaints for illegal dumping in 2021 among neighborhoods in San Fernando Valley.
Fortunately for homeowners, individuals, business owners, and other residents of Van Nuys, Junk King of San Fernando Valley offers the most affordable, efficient, and environmentally friendly option for junk removal. Not only can we help Van Nuys clean up any illegal dumps that might be affecting your neighborhood, but we can also help avoid the problem in the first place by ensuring that all of your junk is dealt with in a safe, legal, and efficient manner.
The Problems that come with Illegal Dumping in Van Nuys
Illegal dumps are more than just an eyesore. As trash and waste is left to build up in certain areas of our neighborhood, there are several negative consequences that can ensue, including:
- Health Hazards and Public Health Risks: When illegally dumped waste accumulates in a community, that waste immediately becomes a public health hazard. Most illegal dumps contain hazardous waste such as sharp objects, electronic waste, or even asbestos. Toxic waste items can leach out dangerous chemicals into the surrounding soil and water sources, potentially affecting local families. Furthermore, illegal dumps are also a vector for disease as they attract rodents and other disease-carrying animals.
- Rising Public Sanitation Costs: The process of removing illegally dumped waste costs a lot of money to the local City government. This not only drains valuable public funds from other sources of spending, but it also can put a strain on regular trash pickup.
- Environmental Damage: As we mentioned above, illegally dumped materials can harm the local environment by killing birds and fish, damaging plants, soil, and sources of water.
- Decreasing Property Values: Nobody enjoys the sight of an illegal dump in an abandoned lot or a city park. When illegal dumping practices become common and widespread, property values can quickly plummet, thus affecting the financial and economic stability of the region.
In order to avoid these serious problems associated with illegal dumps, it is important to deal with these issues as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, the City government responsible for trash removal often does not have the time, labor, or resources necessary to clean up an illegal dump in a timely fashion. The result is that the illegal dump grows in size and duration, thus compounding the negative effects outlined above. Instead of simply relying on local government officials to deal with the problem, hiring a private junk hauler is often the only way to get for a quick and efficient solution to the problem.
