Illegal dumpers caught on camera

Lafayette County Solid Waste Manager Bobby Jones said his department has caught six people illegally dumping on developed land in the county using hunting, motion-detection cameras in “hot spots” around the county where they’ve seen repeated dumping violations. (February 11, 2011, Page 1A)

    1. MELISSA M. JONES says:

      What about the water supply? I drank water from the tap at the area where asbestos material was “allegedly” dumped. My water turned a milky white. I even complained to the water department about it but was told it was probably lime build up. After months of living off Imodium AD and Pepto Bismol (even my animals were sick), I find out from the MDEQ that I was actually living by a toxic landfill. I moved that night and haven’t been sick since but I have to wonder how many others have been made ill by this and am terrified when I think of what the long term effects will be. The people of Oxford should be outraged and a few ignorant thugs have turned our town into a garbage dump! Way to go Bobby Jones!
