Another illegal dump site found

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Another Dumpsite was discovered Friday morning in the Albany area, on Silica Road in the woods behind Schnitzer metal recycling.

Kynard McCray has been charged with illegal dumping, and fined $750. He went before Judge Weaver Thursday, who declared McCray has 10 days to clean up bricks and other debris.

According to a report, a citizen driving by followed McCray to a gas station nearby, recorded his licence plate, and reported him to authorities.

"This is the only way we will be successful and have our community clean and safe as we want it to be is if every citizen reports things to us they are our eyes and ears and we can't do it without the citizens help," said Judy Bowles of Keep Albany Beautiful.

Police are also looking into another pile of trash just yards away from the dump site. They are unsure who is responsible for the debris.

Anyone witnessing illegal dumping is asked to call Police. You can also call Code Enforcement at 229-438-3913 or call 311.

Keep Albany Beautiful wants to remind people that the cost of clean up goes to the taxpayer.

Oxford Construction on North Washington will recycle bricks and blocks for free and if you are a Dougherty county resident you can dump 250 pounds of garbage a day for free.
