LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- We have a reminder to put your trash where it's supposed to go, and it's not in places like along the roadside.

Employees in the Lee County Solid Waste Department took pictures recently showing illegal dumping items piling up on Ladd Street in Lehigh Acres.

They say illegal dumping is not only bad for the environment and property values, it's also bad for your wallet.

Public tax dollars are used to clean it all up and take it to the dump.
