Illegal dumping continues to cause problems for boroughs, townships and charities | Community

Montoursville, Pennsylvania – Police are looking to identify two men who allegedly threw trash and other items into Indian Park’s recycling containers.

In a Facebook post asking for help, police wrote, “Anyone with information, please contact Montoursville Police at 570-368-2488 or send a note via Facebook Messenger. Please do not post any names in the section comments”.

Illegal dumping at recycling and drop-off sites has recently been a problem plaguing the area.

In early July, Upper Fairfield Township supervisors elected to permanently close their recycling drop-off location due to the overload of trash and non-recyclable items left behind.
