Marion County hired a company to clean up Scott’s Ridge in 2006, and they did a ton of work.
Actually, it was close to two tons.
“We took three and a half million pounds of waste out of there when we cleaned it up,” said Keith Brock, the Marion County solid waste coordinator.
To prevent future dumping, the fiscal court approved constructing a fenced-in lookout, and it has successfully prevented people from dumping more trash over the edge.
But another problem has developed — graffiti.
