Councilman Rick Blackwell (D-12) is praising the efforts of Solid Waste Management Services Enforcement Officers for their work in impounding the fifth vehicle of the year involved in illegal dumping.
“SWMS Officers are to be commended for their continued enforcement of the illegal dumping ordinance approved by the Metro Council,” says Blackwell. “We want to remind everyone, if you choose to dump trash wherever you want to, it will be costly, and you will be caught.”
The impounded SUV was seen on surveillance cameras being used to dump bags of household trash and a pool liner. The dumping occurred at a business in the 6600 block of Manslick Rd on May 19th of this year.
SWMS Enforcement used the footage, eyewitnesses, and evidence in the trash bags to locate the vehicle on Tioga Rd. The individual was issued a citation totaling $500, and the owner will have to pay approximately $250 for impound and storage fees.
