Every day, people dispose of unwanted materials. In the city of Marseille, and in other French cities, this waste is known as "dumps". While dumping is not a new phenomenon, the digital age has made it much more visible. The proliferation of cameras and their ability to capture images at any time has led to an increase in the number of illegal dumping offenses recorded by camera traps as well as security cameras. Phototraps are small devices that can be installed in public spaces such as roadsides, gardens or parks to catch people littering. These devices are easy to install: they simply consist of an automatic camera that takes photos when light strikes it at a certain angle. This makes them a reliable safety measure for urban landscapes, while still fulfilling their original purpose: to catch litterers. How do these traps work?

How much does it cost to install a camera trap?

The cost of a camera trap can vary. The average cost of a professional installation is around 300 $, but it can go down to 200 $ if you buy a small kit. To choose a camera trap, you need to know what the camera you want to buy is for. If you're looking to catch one or more people littering in public spaces, you'll need to buy a camera suitable for the task. For example, if you want to catch people littering in the street, you'll need a camera that's installed on the street and capable of taking pictures at night. If you're simply looking to take general images of people throwing garbage, you might choose a camera with a wide-angle lens and capable of taking pictures of a wider area. It's important to note that if you're simply looking to take general images of people throwing garbage, a wide-angle lens isn't necessary. A camera with a wide-angle lens can also be used to take images of other features, such as vehicles or signs.

Where can a camera trap be installed?

You can set up a camera trap wherever you want to capture images of people throwing garbage. However, certain environmental factors will affect the quality of your images.

To get the best results from your camera trap, make sure it's installed as close to a public space as possible. This means it should be installed near a street, park or other public space.

Conclusion

Litter is a danger to public health, and can lead to fires, water pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Failure to clean up litter and other forms of waste can also result in fines, as well as the possibility of arrest. Cameras can help discourage littering by filming people and/or vehicles littering, particularly when the area where the camera is installed is visible to the public. Littering is a very serious problem, which can easily get worse if left unchecked. Camera traps are one of the most reliable ways of combating illegal dumping and other forms of littering, and can be an excellent addition to any city's arsenal of security cameras.
