Family furious over illegal dumping on Anderson City Road

A “no dumping” sign at the front of James Phillips’ property apparently isn’t going to be enough to get whomever is trashing it to knock it off.

“If I catch them, I’m sure there will be trouble,” Phillips said Friday morning while standing alongside a pile of burned debris he said was set fire by those who dumped it.

“They snuck out here last Monday and set it afire,” he said. “They got wind that someone knew they’d dumped it.”
