Action Plan to Deal with Illegal Dumpingin Scott County

(BLOUNTVILLE, TN) — Illegal dumping in Scott County is a problem. The Board of Supervisors is ready to take action.

Most of the illegal dumping takes place at night by people from out of state and county. Possible solutions include closing all 16 trash disposal sites every evening, closing all sites every Sunday and closing only the sites that get the most illegal trash every night.

Almost all of the sites are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
