COUNCILMAN SAYS DITCHES BEING LITTERED WITH APPLIANCES TO AVOID PAYING FEE
(Atlantic) Atlantic City Councilman Kern Miller says some Cass County citizens are dumping computers and other appliances in the counties ditches to avoid paying a fee to the landfill. Miller says a concerned citizen presented some photographs of the litter during a recent landfill meeting.
“They have to charge a fee because they have to drain certain things and take certain things out those pieces of equipment,” said Miller. “Unfortunately some people in the county and in the city decided that they don’t want to pay those fees and so they dump them in the ditches.”
Miller says the DNR may have to hand down tougher penalties when they catch the people littering the ditches with these items.
“We need to encourage people to do what’s the right thing to do, not the wrong thing to do,” said Miller.
