SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – The mayor has a message for anyone thinking about illegally dumping trash on a Springfield street: “Big Brother is Watching,” and he’ll prosecute you.
Surveillance cameras have caught illegal dumpers in the act at several dumping sites around the city. So far, Springfield Police have cited five Springfield residents and two people from Ludlow caught dumping televisions, tires, trash and yard waste.
Springfield Police Commissioner John Barbieri said there is zero tolerance for this crime.
Police are working with other city departments to eliminate blight in the neighborhoods.
