3 men face charges, fines in illegal dumping in Penn Hills

Trib Live -Penn Hills administration said Monday it caught three men on video as they illegally dumped furniture, debris and garbage on Beechford Road. The men — Ricky Stallworth Jr. of Wilkinsburg, Aaron Evans of Pittsburgh, and Michael Smith of Carnegie — each face civil charges, along with individual fines of $2,000 and clean-up expenses.   Penn Hills Manager Scott Andrejchak said the charges follow a new strategy to address the “outrageous and brazen” illegal dumping within the municipality.  “Penn Hills is committed to curing the wider problem of blight that dumping brings. Dumping invites litter, which poisons a community and encourages blight. … It is an insult to everyone in this community. If you come here to dump, you will be identified publicly and Penn Hills will hand you a bill for thousands of dollars,” Andrejchak said in a news release.
