Illegal dumping sucks. We often get dumpings in our neighborhood (we are surrounded by greenbelts and parks) and I would guess they are repeat offenders. It seems I report a dump about once every 3 weeks. I wish I could catch them in the act! What bothers me about the dumpings are that a lot of the items could be recycled. Not to mention that I have seen fox and coyote not 50 feet from this dump site.
This is an illustration by me after we got dumped on right across from my house!
It was awful- there were mattresses, clothes, bleach bottles, disgusting garbage...and I had to stare at it for 3 days until the city came and cleaned everything up. I must admit the city does do a good job responding to reported dumpings, but maybe they should try to prevent it through public service announcements and education? Oh yeah- the image is just a representation from my imagination, I did not see a blue truck or the event taking place- I can't believe I slept through it all!
Don't forget to look up. On my way to check out the dump site,
I looked up and saw 2 bald eagles soaring overhead.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get a photo of the pair.
