She said she is taking the matter to county officials, hoping they can track down the source of the dumping problem and deal with it.
The problem has been plastic bags of what appears to be medical wastes from someone’s home. The mess includes rubber gloves, soiled bed pads, used syringes and empty medication bottles.
The resident said she or her husband have had to pick up at least three bags of the unhealthy discards at least once a week.
“They don’t even throw it on the side of the road now. It’s in the middle of the road,” the resident said.
That means the mess cannot be ignored.
