DEP Takes Control Of Cleanup At Illegal Dump Sites In Carbon, Schuylkill Counties

DEP's Northeast Regional Office decided to step in and clean up six piles of illegally dumped debris on several properties throughout the Poconos. The cleanup took place on July 14.
The piles were dumped last summer at six locations throughout Carbon and Schuylkill counties; one of the sites is near the Lehigh River outside of Lehighton where tourists come to row and raft on weekends.
DEP used funds from the Solid Waste Abatement Fund to clean up the piles. Hazelton Recycling Service and URS were hired to haul the waste to IESI Landfill in Northampton County.
A total of 550-cubic yards of construction and demolition debris along with some household garbage were hauled away from the six sites.
