“If you see something, say something.” That is the advice offered by the police to help curb crime. It also applies to illegal dumping. Recently, two teens were seen dumping tires at the Talladega National Forest. This particular illegal dumpsite already had 100 tires in the pile so the teens thought they could just add a few more. They were wrong. Now, they’re facing up to six months in jail and a $5,000 fine. Believe it or not, illegal dumping is a huge containment issue for Talladega and many other national parks across the state. In fact, last year Calhoun County officials discovered 82 illegal dumpsites that contained over 129 tons of garbage. That’s a lot for the city and state to clean up.
Beside tires, another common item in these illegal dumpsites are mattresses. Imagine the effort it takes to load up a mattress, drive it to a national park, sneak in and then dump it among the beautiful surroundings. There is a better and more affordable way for mattress disposal. That would be hiring Junk King Birmingham. These are the junk removal pros that have picked up plenty of mattresses from all over the area.
