Gates, Patrols Cut Down on Illegal Dumping at Monroe County Recycling Sites
POCONO TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Illegal dumping at recycling drop-off locations in the Poconos has become less of an issue after extra security efforts were put into place. One recycling drop-off location near Tannersville hasn't always been gated or patrolled by workers from the Monroe County Municipal Waste Management Authority, but after people started leaving more than just paper, plastic, and glass behind, Waste Authority Capt. Jacqueline Bagu says there was no other choice.
