MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- Lincoln County is tracking down people who disposed of garbage along the roads. Sheriff Jeff jaeger says the melting snow has exposed numerous bags of trash, and some of them contained mail, which makes it easy to track down the source of the illegal dumping.
Garbage in the ditch is not the only problem with illegal dumping in Lincoln County. Last week, a Town of Scott man was charged with trespassing for dumping over 50 tires on a neighbor’s land.
Jaeger says if people have something too big for curbside pickup, they should take it to the county’s landfill off Highway R in the Town of Merrill.
