A no-dumping sign along Green Ridge Roadmay might deter would-be dumpers, but Hamilton Township could soon be using "deer-detector" cameras to thwart litterbugs.

Good Idea but

Most people throw the things out their windows and the camera's won't catch that. The camera's could easily be stolen (it's just a fabric strap that attaches them to a tree). Once the word gets out that so and so got caught in so and so area by an outdoor camera the dumping grounds will just be moved.

Possibly a fake camera in plain sight with a sign saying "smile your on camera" would be a good idea, maybe put a little scare into them?

It is a sad situation but your right, something should be done about it, exactly what that is or what will work--who knows. Good Luck!

I agree with Good Idea.

The difference between a deer getting a snapshot taken, and a human, is that the human will walk away with a free camera!
Especially if the shot is taken at night with a flash.

I believe there are infrared models, but is it worth the gamble?
Doesn't the infrared still flash red?

So the chance of a person dumping in the spot you have a camera placed, is like a lottery. If it is placed where there is already a history of dumping, then the dumper will be aware of this program... maybe.

The infrared cameras (atleast some of the models) don't have any type of flash at all. With a little bit of care these cameras could be hidden enough to make it next to impossible to see.
