Notice: Complete this form to voluntarily report a solid waste or hazardous waste complaint to the Department of Natural Resources for follow-up. Personal information collected will be used to investigate the incident and may be provided to requesters to the extent required by Wisconsin's Open Records Law [ss. 19.31-19.39, Wis. Stats.].

The DNR's Violation Hotline provides Wisconsin citizens with the opportunity to confidentially report suspected wildlife, recreational and environmental violations using a toll free number. The hotline number is in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Trained staff relay reported information to our conservation wardens. Anyone who calls the hotline or provides information can remain anonymous. Call 1-800-847-9367, 24 hours a day.

Instructions: Please provide the information requested below. You are not required to fill in section A, but contact information almost always makes investigation of a complaint easier. Without the contact information for the person making the complaint and the phone number for the person being complained about, we may not be able to adequately follow-up.

If this is an emergency spill, call Wisconsin's 24-hour Hazardous Substance Spill Hotline: 1-800-943-0003.
Please provide as much detail as possible. The more information you provide, the easier it is for DNR to follow-up. Use Question 5. to provide any information you have beyond what is asked for in questions 1. to 4.
