Since burn bans went into effect, Smith County Investigators say they've seen more and more cases of people just leaving their trash along county roads. One such trouble spot is off Troup Highway at Moser Lane, also known as County Road 2125.
Dr. Troy Moser lives on that street, and says he's tired of people dumping trash near his property. So, he's dug through some of it to find out who's responsible and handed it over to investigators.
"It made me mad. I don't like to be dumped on, I would like to know the guy that did it and talk to him," says Dr. Moser.
"I am tracking the names down with the information that we have in the trash here and see where it originated from," says Tommy Goodman, Environmental Investigator for Smith County.
Investigators say the people who dumped their trash along Moser Lane face 6 months in jail, a $2,000 fine, or both.
