Keep PA Beautiful: 4 Pittsburgh Men Cited For Illegal Dumping

Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful Tuesday announced four men from the Pittsburgh area have been cited for illegally dumping trash in Allegheny County.  
Brian Sindorf (37) of East McKeesport, and Eric Ruble (47) of Wilmerding were cited for Littering and Scattering Rubbish by Officer Michael Havens, Jr. of Allegheny County Police.  Sindorf was fined $296, Ruble was fined $445, while the other two men are awaiting summary trial.
Evidence photos from surveillance cameras led to four citations in May 2017.  The cameras were on loan to the borough by Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful, who offers a program to help confront and reduce illegal dumping throughout the state.  
The cameras are able to capture evidence of the dumping, as well as clear photos of license plates, even at night.  
“Illegal dumping is not only detrimental to the environment but also brings a financial burden to our local communities as they are often the ones left to clean up the mess,” explained Shannon Reiter, President of Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful.  Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful found that on average, it costs local communities $600/ton or nearly $3,000 for an average illegal dump cleanup.
