HOUSTON – Illegal dumping is a big problem in Houston, and KHOU 11 News caught two men dumping trash from the back of a pickup truck onto a vacant property in Acres Homes.
Homeowner Michelle Timms said that people use her street in Acres Homes “every day” to dump their trash.
“That’s not fair to us -- the ones that want to keep it clean,” Timms said.
Houston City Councilman Jerry Davis said the city is installing 25 hidden cameras in various locations to capture evidence.
“They’re finding these areas where there is a lot of vacant land,“ Davis said.
The two men told us that they were taking their trash “to the dump.”
