    Gotta luv the entitlement mentality. Responsibility is a dirty word. (sarcasm)

    Good job on catching these lazy good for nothings! But I must wonder why their faces and names have not been published; perhaps there is a technical reason and it would be good to know. However, since this was an adult (old enough to have a driver's licence) why was the most effective way to stop this sort of thing not utilized? As a tax payer I will now have to pay to put these jerks through the legal system, the cameras used to catch them as well as cleaning up the mess they left behind! Punishment is a wonderful thing but in cases such as this one "prevention" must be the prime objective!

    I can guarantee you these losers will blame everybody else but themselves. They will blame the media, the city, their spouses…..the list will go on and on. Then, when it comes time to have this case heard in court, they will most likely plead not guilty. As far as they are concerned, they have done nothing wrong. You can’t cure stupid.

    There should be an example made of these guys,their truck should be taken so they can,t even haul garbage anymore,they should be fined the max of $10.000, Not only the driver his helper there should also get the same fine.better yet make them walk the roads and pick up all the garbage.it's not only in CBS , St John,s certainly has the same problems,only yesterday I was driving Water St West.a truck in front of me pulling a pile of sheet medal on it when a piece of it flew of,no tailgate on the truck,not covered,if it had hit a person it would have sliced them open big time.Come council bring in a bylaw to have people secure their garbage properly.You see this all the time in the downtown area.And yes the people should know who this scum are on camera.

    The only way people are going to take illegal dumping seriously is if they know by doing it, they have something significant to lose. Up to $1k in fines and hidden identity is not a major lose for most... especially contractors that will just tack it on to the cost of their work somehow. In the end the client pays this $1k. Adding a heftier fine won't necessary solve this solution, nor can we rely on the cameras given the fact that people are now more aware of the cameras and we have lots of deserted areas in NL. SHOW THEIR FACES. A lot cheaper than cameras. You can guarantee the one used to take this photo won't last long.

    Handing out fines for illegal dumping will be as effective as fines for Vehicle infractions. I also agree with one poster on publishing names and faces.

    So, the next guy now knows to go somewhere else to dump his stuff....well done! BTW, how many cameras do think it will take to cover....well, everywhere?

      Heck, what was I thinking when I posted that !? That $5000 camera is almost certainly out of service or 'missing' now. As you were, everyone.

    Don't hide their faces from the public. Let everyone know who they are. Publish their names and photos. Why not?

    The mayor should get the people that work for CBS town council to go and clean up these areas from garbage. Everywhere you look there is a moutain of illegal garbage that was dumped, I can name a few places that people have called in and nothing has been done to clean it up. Th epeople that work for the town should get off their butts and get out there to clean up the garbage. Ya, you want to catch these people but the mayor isn't ording anybody to go out that works for him to clean it up! IT NEEDS TO BE CLEANED UP!! What is CBS tax payers paying for???!!!

      Taxpayer, why would Town Employees have to clean this up. Make the dumpers clean up their own mess. PS. The people that work for this town work for the TOWN, not for the idiots who are illegal dumpers. You seem to know where there are a few places of garbage, why dont you do something productive and clean it up yourself.

    Garbage dumping garbage. It's too bad that their faces can't be published, the community deserves to know who the pigs amongst them are. Kudo's to the town for this innovative solution. I hope that they get a cut of the fines to help pay for more cameras.
