Illegal trash dumping on I-391 on-ramp in Chicopee

Hampden County

Someone dumped multiple bags of trash on an I-391 on-ramp in Chicopee.

22News shot this video of trash thrown all over the I-391 south on-ramp at Exit 3 in Chicopee Tuesday.

Usually, rain washes away dirt, but the rain couldn’t wash away this mess.

When 22News arrived, MassDOT crews were already removing bottles and papers and other debris from the interstate roadway.

The on-ramp is part of nearly 10,000 miles of road MassDOT’s responsible for keeping clean and removing litter from.

The state takes illegal dumping very seriously, and it could cost you.

If you’re caught littering, you could face a $5,500 fine for a first offense.
