We’ve seen multiple reports recently of a Schuylkill County man dumping all over the area.
Maybe Schuylkill County Man is confused. Perhaps he thinks those No Dumping signs posted all over the place mean another kind of dumping.
But Schuylkill County Man is quickly learning that No Dumping doesn’t mean what he thinks it might. Although, it should be noted that the dumping that Schuylkill County man may be confusing the signs for is also illegal. At least it should be.
If you’re going to dump, leave your dumps in the right receptacles.
And State and local police across the area are cracking down on this illegal dumping activity.
Schuylkill County Man Caught Dumping Illegally
Here’s a roundup of recent illegal dumping activity caught by police in the area:
Pottsville Man Caught Dumping
Back in mid-May, State Police in Schuylkill Haven say Shaun Williams, 39, of Pottsville, was found dumping “approximately one load of rubbish” into a secluded wooded area along Ann Street in Norwegian Township.
The incident got reported on May 19, just before 8 p.m.
The area was marked private property and, of course, isn’t another man’s private dumping ground.
But what’s “approximately one load” of trash? We may need clarification on what’s considered an official load.
Illegal Dumping in Pine Grove Township
Another illegal dumping incident happened back on May 20 along Swopes Valley Rd. in Pine Grove Township.
A witness spotted a person dumping a couch, TV, and fan down an embankment and into the woods along the rural road just after 1 p.m. that day.
A scattering rubbish charge was allegedly filed against the unnamed actor but we could not find a court record associated with the incident.
Minersville Composting Site Hit By Dumpers
Back in mid-May as well, someone dumped a whole bunch of garbage at the Minersville Composting and Recycling site in the borough.
According to a Facebook post in the There Is Nothing Finer Than To Be A Battlin Miner group, a stove, some railings, a few wire racks, a weed wacker, and a space heater were all left at the site.
Minersville PD, at last report, was attempting to track down the dumper or dumpers by use of video surveillance technology.
Centralia Plagued by Dumping
The last report comes from just over the county line in Centralia.
Back on May 18, reports of a mass dumping site started circulating on social media. Mattresses, tires, and even a broken toilet were among the bigger items scattered along the side of a road in Centralia.
