Illegal Dump Sites Will Be Cleaned Up

Posted: Updated:
MAGNOLIA SPRINGS, ALABAMA -

The Alabama Dept. of Environmental Management has identified 5 illegal dump sites in Baldwin County.

The dumps are in the southern part of the county- near Magnolia Springs, Bon Secour and Perdido Beach.

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.

Everytime you buy new tires, you pay a scrap tire disposal fee.

That money is used to clean up illegal tire and trash dumps.
