Disgusting Illegal Dumping Back Weeds

DSC_0410

What’s worse than woodchips and the subsequent woodchip gate?!

Blatant dumping in our own backyard.

Back weeds, directly behind the 8-track, there are 4 piles/strips of construction debris. It is all construction debris that was dumped out of a dumpster. It looks to be mainly roofing material but it basically looks like an entire house was gutted, put into dumpsters, then dumped back weeds. It’s literally everything you would see in a gutted house including a kitchen sink, awning, and satellite dish.

The area in question, which everyone should see, is behind the 8-track. After a little bit of walking around you can see the vehicle trail through the weeds. It appears that a vehicle entered the 8-track from the main trail from where they could of entered pretty much through any gate.

Which begs the question: How did they get through the gates? Who has responsibility for these gates? The city? A local organization? Then, more importantly who committed the act?

Seriously! This is truly horrible. Not just because they dumped all of this garbage but because you have this strange feeling that it could be “locals”. What kind of person dumps this stuff? Good luck to them when the investigation starts.

We will be updating this story as more updates come out.
