Update: DEP will investigate dump piles in Lehighton
Two mounds of trash have been dumped on property in Lehighton and surrounding areas. One heap was discovered this morning at Snyder Tire in Lehighton and another on Riverview Road at Torco in East Penn Township. The Department of Environmental Resources will be going to the site Friday to check the contents. Spokeswoman Colleen Connelly said they suspect the construction and demolition debris is from a New Jersey company that has been a problem in the Lehigh Valley area.
