The state is forcing the city of Pelham to clean up an area behind the farmers market full of old tree limbs and branches.
The Department of Natural Resources calls this a dump site and told the city last month to get rid of it.
The Pelham City Manager says the city just uses it as a "staging area" for debris.
The state says they need to grind up the material. So the city will turn the brush picked up from around town into mulch.
“We have a local business man that after its ground up he would like to haul the compose pile off and spread it on his land,” says Jim Hedges, Pelham City Manager.
They're also cleaning up this landfill which has been closed for sometime.
They plan to dig a big hole and fill it with some of the limbs and cover it.
