Terrytown Mayor Kent Greenwalt says his community needs to stop becoming a dumping ground for unwanted items from people outside Terrytown.

Greenwalt says people dump mattresses, chairs, furniture and other items in alleys in his community instead of paying the fees to dispose of it properly at the Gering landfill. Greenwalt says the activity occurs at night and one person caught in the act told a city employee it is a common practice for some Scottsbluff residents.

Greenwalt says it has been happening for years and needs to come to an end.

Scottsbluff Police Chief Kevin Spencer says he is looking at strategies to help resolve the issue, and along with Greenwalt says video surveillance cameras may be placed on power poles to help identify those who are doing the dumping.
