WINNIPEG — A new pilot project is hoping to catch people dumping old couches, mattresses and garbage in back lanes and lots around Winnipeg.
In the coming weeks the city will mount six cameras in undisclosed locations around the city it deems as problem areas.
The locations will not be advertised to make it easier to catch and prosecute people illegally dumping bulk trash.
The cameras are able to produce high resolution images and can capture a licence plate up to 250 feet away in complete darkness.
The city is spending $55,000 on the two-year project.
There’s no word yet on exactly when the cameras will be operational.
