Westside High School students picked up litter in Oceana recently. The students collected nearly two tons of trash and debris from the riverbank as well as Gilliland Park. Officials are using litter cameras to catch those dumping garbage illegally as well as going through illegally dumped trash to find a name. The result can be a fine, plus court costs, of almost $400 and/or sentencing to community service, according to officials. Accumulating garbage, trash, paper, litter, refuse, cans, bottles, discarded furniture, appliances, tires, construction and demolition materials, among other items in yards, on road ways, or in streams is illegal. To report these open dumps, contact Jeff Lane, litter control officer, at 304-732-8000, extension 421, or contact commissioners Silas Mullins Jr. at 304-732-8000, extension 288; Larry Mathis at 304-682-4834, or Jason Mullins at 304-673-9019.
