“By the time I drive down here, I can have an accident here,” Guzman told 22News. “People don’t think about that. People live around here, can’t you just take your garbage somewhere else?”

Guzman told 22News she’s seen illegal dumping on Bruno Road for years, and hopes police find whoever is responsible.
