DEP Investigates Debris Piles Dumped Illegally

The state Department of Environmental Protection and police are investigating six piles of debris dumped illegally in Carbon and Schuylkill Counties.

The debris is filled with construction and demolition waste and garbage.

According to DEP nothing hazardous was dumped.

Officials said they do have several suspects and the dumping might be related to a similar case in Lackawanna County.

    Yeah, they should just burn it/discard it, but they should find out what lazy-shady company or persons(s) responsible. I cannot stomach the blatant disregard of some for the quality of life in our communities. I think the DEP preforms an important public service, however, like all public services management, review, and maintenance is key to their success and performance as worthy of tax payer dollars. “The Department of Environmental Protection’s mission is to protect Pennsylvania’s air, land and water from pollution and to provide for the health and safety of its citizens through a cleaner environment. We will work as partners with individuals, organizations, governments and businesses to prevent pollution and restore our natural resources.”
