Cameras to track illegal rubbish dumpers

The Amsterdam borough of Zuidoost is to place hidden cameras at household waste collection containers in an effort to track down people who dump their rubbish on the street.

People who do not dispose of their rubbish properly are contributing to a feeling of insecurity on the streets as well as making mess, council officials told news agency ANP.
