Avoid Fly Dumping While Moving

Avoid Fly Dumping While Moving

Fly Dumping, or illegal dumping, tends to increase during peak moving times. Make sure you plan ahead before a move to avoid an increase in dumping in your area.

  • Call ahead to alert trash collectors about larger items, such as couches and mattresses. Call your private waste hauler if you receive private pick up, and call our office at 773-878-4646 if you receive city pick up. Please give as much notice as possible.
  • If you are a building with private waste collection that experiences fly dumping, please note that you will need security footage to prove that illegal waste dumping occurred.
