Anti-Snow Dumping Act

Anti-Snow Dumping Act

The Wall Township Police Department would like to remind the public of the State of New Jersey’s “Anti-Snow Dumping Act”. Under N.J.S.A. 39:4-77.3(b), “The commercial operator of any snowplow, or other snow removal equipment, clearing accumulated snow on private property shall not deposit, or cause to be deposited, such snow on any public road, street, or highway in this State or on public lands.”  “A commercial operator of any snowplow or other snow removal equipment who fails to comply with this provision shall be liable to a fine of $250.00.”

            Furthermore, the Wall Township Police Department would like to remind the motoring public to still drive with due caution since roadways may still partially be covered with snow and ice.  Also please be reminded to slow down and move over when approaching our emergency service workers who are assisting with motor vehicle collisions or disable vehicles.

For any additional information please contact the Wall Police Public Information Officer:

Captain Greg Carpino #130


(732) 449-4500 ext 1130
