Crimes Task Force Has Impact

In 2016, SWACO’s largest grant, almost a half million dollars, was provided to the Environmental Crimes Task Force of Central Ohio (ECTF) to provide community education, support the 24/7 crime reporting website – itsacrime.org, investigate illegal dumping and littering cases, prosecute environmental crimes and cleanup blighted sites. ectf


The Task Force seeks to eliminate illegal dumping and littering in Franklin County and is a model for communities across the country.

Active illegal dumping or littering cases were in the cities of Columbus and Whitehall, Perry, Hamilton and Jefferson Townships, the Village of Lockbourne and the Linden community.

There are currently no significant illegal dumpsites located in Franklin County.

Review the Environmental Crimes Task Force of Central Ohio 2016 Community Impact Report.

To report illegal dumping or littering call the 24/7 hour hotline at 614-871-5322 or submit a report at itsacrime.org.
