WASHINGTON BOROUGH, NJ (Warren County) – The person who illegally dumped garbage alongside a roadway in Washington Borough now has a court date.
“Dear Out-Of-Town-Dumper: Please stop bringing your garbage to our town and dispose of it in your own town. Thank you for leaving junk mail in the bags so that we could identify you as well as look you up on social media,” Washington Brough officials wrote on a Facebook post.
“This allowed us to determine that you probably travel through Washington Borough each day on your way to and from work based upon where you live and where your place of employment is, which was all posted there,” the post said.
The post said, summonses are in the mail and see you in court.
“Finally, please note that we decided to take the high road and not publish your name even though your profile is publicly viewable. You know who you are. To all other Out-Of-Town-Dumpers: now that the Borough utilizes carts for disposal it is very easy for us to pick out the bags you leave. We will find you!,” the post said.
