New Program Fights Illegal Dumping in Wayne County


DETROIT, MI - Wayne County's Department of Environment has kicked off a new program aimed at helping communities fight illegal dumping. It is called the C.L.E.A.N. program, which stands for County Lending Environment Assistance to Neighborhoods, and it is aimed at cleaning up illegal dumping sites in cities all across Wayne County.

Wayne County Executive Robert Ficano explained how the program works: "You fill out an application. If its accepted, then Wayne County cleans it up, and then you enter into an agreement, whether you're a community group or a city, that you're going to maintain vigilance to keep it clear of dumping."

The cleanups are paid for with money diverted from tipping fees from Wayne County landfills. So far, five sites in Highland Park have been cleaned.
