Amarillo continues it’s fight against illegal dumping.
During a lunch with other city leaders, the public works department announced they have received five more cameras to develop the network for watching for dumpers.
There are currently two operational cameras at one of the places considered a hot spot. The first citation was issued back in April and since then, there have been 14 violations caught on camera.
Last year, the department picked up 5,600 illegal dumping work orders in alleys. This year, they are around 6,600
The new cameras should be installed in the next two weeks, and the city’s bulky item program is still available, but it will not pick up anything like concrete or construction trash.
The number for the bulky item program is 806-378-6813
