Albany - Someone is using the sand dunes in Albany as a personal landfill. Take a look at this mess. On Friday, Judy Bowles of Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful was pulled out of a meeting, where she was discussing illegal dumping, to be told of another dump site.

She says the ugly junk pile obviously was dumped here by a business, but taxpayers will have to pay to clean it up. "We have to send a crew out here and stop them from what they're doing. They've got to come out and clean this up and properly dispose of it and it cost every citizen in Albany-Dougherty county our tax dollars to do this," said Bowles.

If you get caught dumping illegally, you could be fined $1,000 and even serve jail time.
