Filthy people! I hate them with a passion. I think dumpers get off too easy just like petty thieves, tresspassers and texting drivers.

I am sick and tired of you dumpers. We live in the country and people are always dumping off old washers, beds, chairs.... It is out of control. When the dumpers do their deeds we have to either clean it up or take it to the dump. We don't want to take care of other peoples garbage!!!Lock'em up!Down in Corning this past fall, students from Richfield Elementary helped clean up garbage at the creek. They hauled off a truck and trailer full of beds, couches, garbage upon garbage that dumpers disgarded. Disgusting! Don't make others clean up after you...Be respectful. Obviously you don't want it in your yard and neither do we!!

What we need is for the landfill to have a day every month or so that people can bring the items that you mentioned to the landfill and dump them at no cost or a small fee, so we don't find them on the side of our roads or the creeks. At present, when I took a box spring to the landfill, it cost me $13 to dump something that weighted 20 pounds, and that was above and beyond the weight cost for the item, which I had already paid for. In the long run, the county has to pick this stuff up, and then pay the cost of dumping it, and that just costs us money.

Actually I wouldn't call them litterbugs or dumpers. The article said they were burning what they placed there. If what they placed there was all burned then all you have is ashes which is good for the soil.. Did someone possibly jump the gun and assume something and arrest these individuals. I would like to hear the real story.

Shouldn't cost us money. People are so but-hurt about the environment there should be 200,000 volunteers on spot right now cleaning it up... YA i know thats not realistic... Neither is having a free dump day... Me personally id save every tiny piece of trash i had til that day and dump it... That being said they should have a day with reduced fee for household items... I too find it ridiculous when they charge me 15$ to dump off an old lazy boy... However, free is just asking for trouble... They did a thing kinda like that in the town of Gerber... Brought in too of the HUGE dumpsters and they were full in an hour... That was for Gerber residents... Yes Gerber has a lot more trash than most places...

OK... lets say they were burning on public land... What were they burning? Only paper, wood, grass, leaves...(you know... Stuff you can burn legally)? Seems a little ridiculous to call that trash... Secondly did they have a permit for burning on Public land? That is if its even legal to burn in a creek...? So if we set the dump on fire that would be perfectly helpful to the environment! I like your logic... A+

What needs to be done is to load their trash in a dump truck and haul it back to their house. Then, dump it in their front yard.

Finally, while being supervised, make them reload their trash into their own truck and haul it to the dump (sanitary landfill or transfer facility).

Yep sure did Nancy. Being from an old school,your treasures might just be trash to me and vice versa. The news article was less than informative as they could of said what the alledged trash was. And if someone dumps something they normally aren't going to set it on fire to draw attention. Go figure. Now I would like to hear the rest of the story as previously stated and hope that those like Nancy quit jumping to conclusions.
