Illegal Dumpster-Dumping? Report It
A Barrington town ordinance prohibits the emptying of Dumpsters by trash haulers before 7 am; report illegal dumping to police.
The Barrington police want to know if you are awakened or disturbed by trash haulers emptying Dumpsters before 7 am.
Police Chief John LaCross said a Barrington ordinance prohibits the collection of trash from Dumpsters before 7 am. A trash hauler will be fined if that occurs, he said.
LaCross issued this reminder after police received a complaint last Friday morning, Aug. 3, by a Maple Avenue man. A driver for Patriot Disposal reportedly picked up trash from a Dumpster near the Maple Avenue medical building about 5:50 am a couple of weeks ago.
The driver, 46, was issued a summons to pay a $100 fine, LaCross said.
LaCross also said he has sent a letter to the four trash haulers that work in Barrington reminding them about the early-morning trash ordinance and the penalty for violating it.
