Crime Stoppers

Crime Stoppers and the New Brunswick Department of Natural Resources are asking the public for their help in resolving an on-going problem on Crown Lands.

Disposing of debris, garbage, construction material, or vehicles on Crown Lands is an offense under the Crown Lands and Forests Act. Any person convicted of this offense could be fined a minimum of $500.00 for the first offense, and may be ordered to restore the land to its original state. This problem is not restricted to Crown Lands. Numerous private land owners have also experienced an increase in this illegal activity.

Disposing of debris can be harmful to wildlife and a risk for forest fires. If near watercourses, it can become an environmental problem. Help keep New Brunswick clean, and report those who litter.

If you have any information pertaining to this illegal act, contract Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477) or visit our website at
