Gross… City Caught Using Filth From City Dump to Fill Tree Stump Holes

Quincy, Illinois residents complained after they found filth from the city’s dump including used tampons in tree stump holes in their yards.
Quincy News reported:

A complaint about dirt the city of Quincy used to fill a hole on South 23rd Street has led to officials saying they will change their procedures.

Central Services earlier this week used dirt filled with garbage and debris in 11 spots throughout town. That particular load came from the city’s Waste Treatment Plant.

Gary Sparks, Director of Administrative Services for the city, said only about 10 percent of the fill dirt used to come from there. Effective immediately, the city will not use dirt from that location again for filling purposes.

A resident found and took photos of the garbage, which included broken plastic and feminine hygiene products – after placing it in a pile. The photos were forwarded to city officials.
