There’s been a substantial increase in illegal dumping in Springfield during daylight hours.
Springfield’s Deputy Director of Code Enforcement says debris dumped near donation boxes on Allen Street has become an epidemic.
A 22News viewer took these pictures before dark at the Five Town Plaza.
She said this debris was dumped from a van early Tuesday evening near the donation box between Dunkin Donuts and Best Fitness.
The people who littered the property with mattresses, chairs and trash were never identified.
