Illegal dumping is a problem. It threatens human health, harms the environment, impacts quality of life, and burdens the community with significant costs. To assist in this battle against illegal dumping, the Houston-Galveston Area Council Solid Waste Program has purchased illegal dumpsite surveillance cameras which are able to capture clear videos day or night as well as license plates of cars traveling at speeds up to 50 mph. Cameras will be available for local governments to use, but must be used for illegal dumping enforcement 100% of the time.

To access the cameras you must sign an agreement and agree to submit results reports to H-GAC. Agreements must be signed by both you and the County of your choice prior to you checking out the cameras for use. You may want to sign agreements with more than one of the counties to better your chance that a camera set will be available for your use at any given time.
