The City of New Orleans

Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu


Illegal dumping is dumping of any waste, whether it is construction and demolition debris, furniture, appliances, trash, litter or landscaping cuttings, etc., upon any public right-of-way, City property or private property, without consent of the owner.

The Sanitation Department's Quality of Life Officers patrol daily to deter illegal dumping and investigate citizen complaints. Community help is essential to catching and deterring illegal dumps.

Report Illegal Dumping

The City encourages anyone who observes someone illegally dumping to report it by calling 311 Monday to Friday between 8am and 5pm.

When possible, please take down the following information:

  • Incident: date, time, location and type of material
  • Vehicle: license plate number, color, make and model
  • Description of person(s) dumping: gender, age, hair color and clothing
  • Any other identifying or incriminating evidence: pictures
  • Your name and phone number (optional)
