Illegal dumping an issue in the city

The city of Erie is asking for your help identifying a man caught illegally dumping a couch.

Durst Trucking's surveillance cameras caught the crime on camera.

A man pulled up and removed a couch from his SUV and left it on Durst's property.

Andy Zimmerman, city code enforcement manger, said the lot between Durst, 3223 Poplar St., and Carrara Steel is a common dumping ground.

“It's a large problem,” Zimmerman said. “We have quite a few hot spots around that people do dump. They miss the large item pickup so they take it upon themselves to discard their items.”

If you have any information call Erie police at 870-1120.
