Toledo goes 'zero tolerance' on illegal dumping

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - "We have a zero tolerance for illegal dumping. If you are caught dumping, you will be in handcuffs.”

Those were the words of Toledo Mayor Wade Kapszukiewicz, who announced the changes to city rules Thursday, which will include a mandatory ten-day jail sentence for those convicted of illegal dumping.

The city wants the community to help with the crackdown as well, asking that they photograph the license plate and call Engage Toledo at 419-936-2020 to make a report.

Residents are also permitted one free monthly bulk curbside pickup, which can be scheduled by calling 419-936-2020.
