19 Aug: Norcross ‘Anti-Snow Dumping Act’ Now Law

TRENTON – Legislation sponsored by Senator Donald Norcross (D-Camden/Gloucester) to prohibit commercial operators from plowing snow off private land and dumping it onto public areas, where it can be a major public safety hazard, has been signed into law.

“During a number of storms last winter, we found that private snow removal operators were dumping snow onto public roads and other property,” said Senator Norcross. “When this occurs, it creates a major safety hazard for drivers, it increases taxpayers’ costs and makes the job of public cleanup crews that much more difficult. This law is designed to prevent this hazardous practice, both to ensure that our roadways remain safe and our cleanup operations effective and cost-efficient.”
