Disposing of debris, garbage, construction material, or vehicles on Crown land is an offence under the Crown Lands and Forests Act. Any person convicted of this offence could be fined a minimum of $500 for the first offence, and may be ordered to restore the land to its original state. This problem is not restricted to Crown Lands. Numerous private land owners have also experienced an increase in this illegal activity. Disposing of debris can be harmful to wildlife and a risk for forest fires. If near watercourses, it can become an environmental problem. Help keep New Brunswick clean, and report those who litter.
