City/County Illegal Dump Cleanup Program

Compliance & Enforcement, Waste Reduction & Assistance Section

Ken Powell, Section Chief

House Bill 2860 went into effect July 1, 2000, allowing Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) to work with city and county governments to clean up illegal dumps throughout Kansas. KDHE is authorized to contribute 75% (up to a maximum of $10,000 per site) with the city or county being responsible for 25% of in-kind services.

Contact your local KDHE district office or the Topeka office for more information.
