Auckland Council will spend $200,000 on a dumping hotline, hoping to catch those people who are dumping rubbish illegally on the side of city streets. Camera's will be set up in dumping hot spots and they'll be resources to find those responsible. It's not just an Auckland issue though, Rotorua Lakes District has been dealing with the same trash-dumping and it got so bad a local councillor offered up his own cash to catch the perpetrators. It seems to have worked. We speak to councillor Charles Sturt about how the campaign to end dumping has been going.
