Albany and Dougherty County is having problems with illegal dumping and people that think they can throw their materials in other people's dumpsters.

The dumpsters belong to the business and owners are getting upset when they walk out to find it is full.

Executive Director of Keep Albany Dougherty Beautiful Judy Bowles tells FOX 31 that it's illegal to dump trash in another person's dumpster.

Bowles adds that if a suspect is found guilty, "he/she could face up to a one-thousand dollar fine and have to pick up trash in a one-mile radius of the incident."
