The illegal dumps are filled with old tires, electronics, lumber and construction debris- even household garbage.
The sites are potential health hazards.
ADEM will work with work the Baldwin County Solid Waste Dept. to clean up the dumps.
Cleaning up the sites will cost about 35-thousand dollars.
Alabama drivers will ultimately pick up the tab.
