No dumping

Avalon residents and anyone else who have been dumping things at the public works site on Semple Avenue are on notice that dumping is now prohibited.

At Tuesday’s borough council meeting, Mayor Dave Haslett asked about new “No dumping” signs that have been erected, noting that many residents had gotten into the habit of taking grass clippings and other yard debris to the area.

Borough manager Harry Dilmore said that people had been dumping unacceptable materials -- everything from large trees to television sets -- while others had been disposing of items in the wrong locations. From now on, he said, no dumping whatsoever will be allowed.
