There’s a new law on the books that aims to cut down on illegal dumping in Baltimore.

According to the Department of Public Works, there’s an estimated 10,000 tons of waste illegally dumped each year.
Now anyone who dumps their trash where it doesn’t belong can be fined $1,000.
The best way to get rid of waste you don’t want is to call 311.
