Hinterculture productions created a Public Service Announcement based on the votes from our public engagement activity that asked you what message you wanted to emphasized to activate community involvement in illegal dumping. The community overwhelmingly decided REPORTING is the message that needs to be broadcast and encouraged in the region to address the illegal dumping activities in the AV.
Please report any illegal dumping activities at 1-888-8DUMPING & STOPILLEGALDUMPING.COM. Help keep our deserts beautiful!
