Sheriff: everyone pays for illegal dumping

The Kewaunee County Sheriffs Department warns those who illegally dump unwanted items on back roads that they'll pay directly or indirectly for such violations. That warning comes as the department posted a photo of a sofa left in a ditch just north of Algoma asking for public assistance to find the violators.  Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski says those who believe they're saving money by leaving it to local governments to take care of the unwanted items they dump on public lands need to rethink that mistaken idea.



Sheriff Joski says the removal costs to taxpayers increases as people leave electronic waste, such as old TV's and computers, in ditches or on other public lands.
