Teenager admits dumping garbage

August 8, 2007

Albany --  Code Enforcement Officers found piles of garbage Wednesday morning, dumped in an alley that runs between Holly Drive and Redbud Road. Most of the garbage was household waste.

Officers found evidence in the garbage that led to 18-year-old Trenton Bouyer, who confessed to the illegal dumping when questioned by police. He was cited for illegal dumping.

"This is not acceptable behavior," said Judy Bowles of Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful. "Hopefully anyone who notices someone going down their alley or dirt road will report that tag number to us, so we can stop it."

Bouyer could be fined $1,000 and sentenced to community service for the illegal dumping. Bowles said illegal dumping like this is very common in Dougherty County. You can report illegal dumping by calling Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful at 229-430-5257 or Code Enforcement at 229-438-3913.
