Littering is a plague on our daily lives and a real waste for the circular economy

People throw away all kinds of waste, mostly with the help of a vehicle. From household garbage to more important waste (carcass of vehicles).


Illegal dumping is costing our communities more and more money without being able to stop it for good. They cost more and more for the same result. They require important resources, as well to locate them, remove them and penalize the indelicate polluters.

Karroad offers an innovative and patented solution to help you stop illegal dumping once and for all. Indeed, either the mayor, with his police power, or a public establishment of inter-communal cooperation, can set up a real strategy to stop illegal waste deposits.

Based on the principle of the possibility of formal notice or payment of a fixed fine by the offender (article l541-3 of the Environment Code and the article article l 5211-9-2 of the Code Général des Collectivités), the Mayor or any holder of the Police power can act. For condominiums, it will be the Syndic. Indeed, with the help of a vehicle or not, day or night, incivilities can happen. Motion detectors are not enough: too many pictures!

Littering is a major problem of public health and environmental pollution. It consists of the abandonment of waste outside of the sorting centers and official collection points, often in natural areas or on the side of the road. It can take many forms, from plastic bags dumped on the side of the road to vehicles abandoned in the woods.

Littering is harmful to the environment and human health. They can pollute soil and water, cause damage to ecosystems and animal species, and cause bad odors and visual nuisances. In addition, they can be dangerous for people who are exposed to them, for example through contact with toxic substances or the presence of sharp objects.

It is therefore important to fight against illegal dumping in order to preserve the environment and the health of all. Here are some ways to do so:

  1. Set up awareness campaigns

One of the first steps in combating littering is to raise awareness of the negative impacts of this practice. It is important to make people understand that waste has an end destination and that there are legal and responsible ways to dispose of it.

To do this, it can be useful to set up communication campaigns through various media (radio, television, posters, social networks, etc.), to participate in awareness-raising events in schools or companies, or to distribute guides and practical advice on good sorting and waste management practices.

  1. Strengthen waste collection and sorting facilities

To encourage people not to deposit their waste outside official collection points, it is important to offer them quality sorting and management facilities. This can be done by providing local waste garbage cans and containers for selective sorting, by deploying additional collection points in densely populated areas, or by setting up collection systems adapted to the needs of the inhabitants (e.g. separate collection).

  1. Promote waste reduction and reuse

Another way to fight against litter is to reduce the amount of waste produced by the population. To do this, it is possible to set up actions to raise awareness about responsible purchasing, to encourage the consumption of local and seasonal products, or to promote the reuse of used objects.

There are also solutions to encourage companies to implement more efficient waste management systems, such as recycling or composting, which allow waste to be recovered and reduce its impact on the environment.

  1. Strengthen sanctions and controls

Unfortunately, it is often difficult to enforce waste management rules and prevent illegal dumping. To fight against this phenomenon, it may be useful to reinforce the sanctions and controls in case of non-compliance.

This can include campaigns to monitor and enforce violations, monitoring and tracking of illegal dumping, and mechanisms to hold businesses and individuals accountable (e.g., by requiring them to contribute financially to waste management costs).

  1. Implement management and cleaning systems

Finally, it is important to put in place mechanisms to manage and clean up illegal dumping that has already been abandoned. This can be done through the intervention of specialized professionals, who are responsible for collecting and treating the waste in a responsible manner.

It can also be useful to set up citizen participation mechanisms, such as clean-up actions organized by associations or local authorities, which make it possible to raise awareness of public health problems and to make everyone responsible for the upkeep of their environment.

In conclusion, the fight against illegal dumping is an important issue for the preservation of the environment and public health. It requires a collective action and diversified means, from awareness raising to waste reduction, through the implementation of efficient collection and management systems and the reinforcement of sanctions and controls. 

The fight against illegal dumping is an important issue for the preservation of the environment and public health. It requires a collective action and diversified means, from awareness raising to waste reduction, through the implementation of efficient collection and management systems and the reinforcement of sanctions and controls. Everyone can contribute to the fight against littering by adopting good sorting and waste management practices, by informing the authorities when littering is detected, and by participating in clean-up actions organized by local authorities or associations. By acting responsibly, we can preserve the environment and the health of all, and contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable world.

The old solutions to the fight against illegal dumping

Stand-alone cameras, isolated or not

Video surveillance cameras, or video protection cameras, are tools that are increasingly used in the fight against illegal dumping. They are autonomous devices which are subject to the code of Internal Security and which require a prefectoral authorization to be installed. They fall within the scope of video surveillance cameras and can be equipped with infrared sensors, which can alter the legibility of license plates at night. Most of these cameras are at least Full HD, but some can be 2k or 4k.

Despite their potential usefulness in the fight against illegal dumping, there are several limitations to the use of these cameras. First of all, the Municipal Police or a mayor does not have the right to use the video recordings made by these cameras except in case of a specific agreement. In order to initiate a legal procedure, the city council must therefore refer the matter to the courts by filing a complaint with the public prosecutor. The gendarmes are in charge of recovering the tapes and the prosecutor can then act. However, we have observed that on average, the reactivity time in France is three months. This can make these cameras inappropriate and over-dimensioned for the fight against illegal dumping, especially if we consider the regulatory aspect that can complicate their operation.

It is therefore important to ask whether the use of these cameras is really the most appropriate solution to fight against illegal dumping. 

It is therefore important to ensure that privacy rules are respected when using these cameras. This can include the installation of information signs indicating the presence of video surveillance cameras, the dissemination of clear instructions on their use, and the creation of a management system for the data recorded by these cameras.

In addition, it is important to note that the use of video surveillance cameras should not be considered the only solution to combat littering. Indeed, it is essential to put in place a set of measures to prevent and regulate this phenomenon.

In sum, the use of video surveillance cameras can be a useful solution in the fight against littering, but it is important to ensure that privacy rules are respected and that it is not the only solution to be implemented. Collective and diversified action is necessary to preserve the environment and the health of all, and to contribute to a cleaner and more sustainable world.

video protection against waste disposal

These illegal deposits can be made with the help of a vehicle, the cameras (as well as the photographic traps) are generally equipped with infrared night vision (it is necessary to check the number of the led ir) whose range only very rarely exceeds 20m.

The concern is then that the infrared can cause a flash effect on the license plate, which prevents its readability. It will be better to choose surveillance cameras or hunting traps with sensors that improve the quality and colorization of night views by AI. The littering is becoming easier to detect.

The photographic traps ( chunting ameras - trap photos )

 

Camera traps are tools often used by wildlife photographers to capture wild animals. They are designed to take pictures when movement is detected in front of the camera. The images are stored on the camera or sent via email through a 4G connection, which allows for remote monitoring of these images through packages (usually around 200 images per month). These camera traps are often equipped with SD cards and have 1080p HD definition. They are powered by cold-sensitive AA batteries and have a variable trigger speed, usually based on the speed of animal movement. They are also often equipped with black LEDs (or infrared LEDs) to allow night vision, but it should be noted that infrared can reflect off license plates.

The main problem with these photo traps is that it is necessary to view many photos to expect to see a bulky dumping offense. Once the photo is identified, a file must be created

for transmission to the public prosecutor and it is not the operator who can intervene directly. In order to act, the Municipal Police must obtain a flagrance for any waste abandonment. This can be time consuming for the operator (on average 2 days per month) and does not always lead to fines.

It is recommended that the municipality ask for written authorization from the Officer of the Judicial Police before using this type of device and to inform the Public Prosecutor of the use of these procedures. It is also important to take into account the pitfalls to be avoided so that the fines are valid and effective in the fight against illegal dumping.

Thus, it is necessary to see Pitfalls to avoid to ensure your fines are done right.

It is also important to note that the use of camera traps can raise privacy concerns. It is therefore essential to ensure that privacy rules are followed when using these tools and that their use is justified and necessary. In sum, it is important to have a comprehensive strategy to combat littering, using a variety of measures and ensuring that everyone's rights are respected.

Waste collection is also an issue in terms of the amount of littering. However, it is rarely the city (let alone the trustee) that manages waste collection.

Signs for posting or prohibiting illegal dumping

Based on the principle of reminding people of the law, no-littering signs are commonly used.

Billboards can be an effective way to combat littering by informing people about waste management rules and the consequences of not following them.

Billboards can be installed in places where littering is common, such as along roadsides, in public parks and gardens, or near waste collection centers. They can be used to remind people of the rules of waste sorting and management, to indicate the nearest collection and disposal points, or to present the waste reduction and reuse schemes set up by the municipality or the region.

Billboards can also be used to raise awareness of environmental and health issues related to littering and to encourage responsible and environmentally responsible behavior. To be effective, billboards must be highly visible, legible and understandable, and must be strategically placed to reach the greatest number of people.

In addition to the use of billboards, it is recommended that a comprehensive anti-littering strategy be put in place, using different measures and ensuring that everyone's rights are respected. This can include awareness campaigns, appropriate collection and sorting schemes, waste reduction and reuse programs, controls and penalties for non-compliance, and clean-up and management of litter. All these actions can contribute to preserving the environment and the health of all.
