Town of Ulster to enforce anti-dumping laws

Dec 06, 2020 5:30 am
William J. Kemble is reporting for the Daily Freeman the town of Ulster will increase enforcement of anti-dumping laws as the practice of unloading garbage along secluded roads in the area is increasing. The town intends to buy equipment that can read license plates, Ulster Supervisor James Quigley said during a videoconference December 3, town board meeting. “We’ll have a discussion ... at the next meeting, authorizing the purchase of device or two of this nature so that we can start monitoring these locations and aggregating data that might give us a lead as to who is doing these actions,” Quigley said. The equipment is estimated to cost roughly $6,000 and would need to be compatible with the town's existing computer system. One of the problem areas is Main Street in the hamlet of East Kingston, which becomes First Avenue in the city of Kingston on the other side of the municipal border. Many of the discarded items seem to be from house-clearing projects, town officials said. The laws that forbid dumping in the town of Ulster include a first-offense penalty of up to 15 days in jail and a fine of up to $750. Read the full story in the Daily Freeman.
