Philadelphia has really stepped up their efforts to catch people dumping their junk on the road. In video surveillance photo’s in broad daylight, people are seen dumping their junk right on a quiet side street.
And the pile keeps growing and growing in the photo’s they show. I can see this costing a city tens of thousands a year just to have guys go out with trucks, round it up, and dispose of it.
This pretty much happens everywhere. I remember my old friend Terry when I live in the Gas Lamp district of San Diego. He sub-let me some warehouse space, and on one wall was completely covered with medium sized boxes. He had some kidney & liver problems, and I think he finally had his operation. Anyway, he had to do some type of dialysis, and he was getting these boxes of the fluids, and after he was finished doinghis thing, he was storing his cleansed fluids still in the bags & boxes they came in, and stacking them up in his space.
So one wall of this warehouse had all these boxes that I really didn’t go near. After I moved back to Arizona when my Mother passed away, I hear that all the boxes were found dumped off the road in a wooded area near downtown. The mess must have been terrible, and it made the local news. So, illegal dumping has been gin on for years.
We get calls all the time about illegal dumping and what can be done about it. Well for one, we have a couple business security options for pole mounted cameras. One is a Solar Powered Wireless Video Surveillance System, which can have a license plate capture camera to get a good shot of the dumpers.
It has an optional solar panel for areas with no electricity, and you can hook up an IP camera, and the wireless 2.4GHz access point will let you access the video online. Solar panels will keep things going, as long as there is 1-6 hours of sun light per day, and 3 sealed batteries will give you about a week of video.
We have other Outdoor security cameras to catch illegal dumping, and you can call us to see about a system that will work for your needs.
