Illegal dumping is a problem throughout the Cowichan Valley. Aside from the environmental and financial costs of this crime, illegal dumping destroys the natural beauty of our region and is frustrating for residents and visitors.

The Hillcrest Road area is one of the region's worst locations for illegal dumping. The CVRD is asking for your help to stop dumping in this area by reporting identifying information to the Ministry of Environment RAPP line.
