The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is cracking down on illegal dumping within the state’s recreational areas. A program called “Don’t Waste Our Open Space” was launched by the D.E.P. in partnership with Camden, Trenton and Secaucus to fight unlawful dumping. Under the new initiative, 34 people were arrested for illegal dumping in some of the state’s publicly owned tracts, including state parks, state forests, wildlife management areas, and marinas. Among those arrested were: Christopher Platt, 21, of Millville, who was charged with illegal transportation and dumping auto parts and household debris at Belleplain State Forest. Lamar Langston, 32, of Cape May, was charged with illegal dumping of 10 garbage bags of household debris at the Cape Island Wildlife Management Area. William E. Wright, 21, of Petersburg, Upper Township, was charged with illegal dumping of three large construction debris piles, found in the Peaslee Wildlife Management Area in Cumberland County. More information is available at www.stopdumping.nj.gov, including a mobile app that can be used to post photos and report acts of illegal dumping.
