M.D. of Taber CPOs looking for tips on illegal dumping

Posted on June 25, 2020 by Vauxhall Advance

The M.D. of Taber Peace Officer Program was dispatched to a report of illegal dumping on Township Road 9-4 between Range Road 17-0 and 17-1.

Upon arrival, it was discovered that heaps of roofing material had been thrown into the irrigation ditch and the road shoulder causing a dangerous road hazard as well as potentially clogging the drainage in the area. The roofing material had hail damage and appears to have come from a residence being repaired from the weekend hailstorm.

Peace officers have canvassed the area and are working on clearing up some video surveillance that might show a license plate.

If you live in this area and have seen anything suspicious, or have video surveillance you’d like us to look at, please contact the CPO program via email at

If you are the person(s) that did the illegal dumping, feel free to email Sgt. Hughes to discuss. If you need directions to the waste transfer station please check out our website for which one is closest – the side of the road is not one of them.
