Waller County officials look to track down source of illegal dumping

- Prosecutors say it's illegal dumping and they've already taken to social media to try and catch the party or parties responsible. That huge mess is lining the road in Waller County.

The county judge and district attorney are hot about the illegal dumping. 

The trash is believed to be from a new construction site according to D.A. Elton Mathis.

It was dumped Tuesday morning on the corners of Morton and Newman Roads in Waller County.

Mathis says this is a big problem for the county. They've seen everything from medical waste, to home building materials on the side of the roads because of the growth in their community.

Investigators have collected several shipping labels from the piles of trash and they plan to track down the culprit that way. 

If you know who is responsible, contact the Waller County Sheriff's Office.
