It is illegal to dump your yard waste on the roadside piles of storm debris

IMG_1777Astonishingly, some of our neighbors are adding their yard clippings to debris piles that storm victims have stacked along the street, especially on Royal Palm Dr. S..  Wednesday, one homeowner noticed a pickup truck loaded with yard waste being unloaded onto a stack of tree limbs and stumps that were the product of Hurricane Irma.

This sort of “piling on” is going on around Pinellas County and to make things worse, some people are taking this opportunity to trash old furniture and appliances too perhaps under the assumption that limb removal teams being sent out to clear storm damage will also happily take any kind of household debris.  In fact, WFLA reports, it is a crime.
