Councilman Yates and volunteers clean up illegal dump site on Old Third

In the spirit of the holiday season, Councilman David Yates and volunteers will lend a helping hand to a couple along Old Third Street Road who have fallen victim to illegal dumping in District 25.

“Illegal dumping continues to be a major concern throughout Metro Louisville,” says Yates. “In this case, the victims of it are not the ones who caused it.”

At 10:00am Friday, December 23rd, Yates and the volunteers removed hundreds of illegally dumped tires. The property at 8201 Old Third Street Road is owned by Charles and Shawn Foerster.

“Twice every year, Southwest Jefferson County has one of the largest Brightside cleanups in the entire city. We take pride in our community,” says Yates. “I want everyone to know that District 25 is paying closer attention to illegal dumping.”

For more information, contact Councilman Yates office at 574-1125.
