Question: Our neighbor has a stack of used car tires and other trash in plain view in his back yard. Isn’t that against the law?
Answer: Yes, it is considered a form of illegal dumping. Other crimes against the environment include burning tires, agricultural waste, chemical release, hazardous waste, chemical and demolition debris, and yard waste.
