FORT STOCKTON/PECOS COUNTY - Fort Stockton and Pecos County officials are tired of people trashing up the town.

It seems some people are just leaving their garbage outside of the dumpsters.

The problem has been going on for a while.

The deal is that trash bins are too full and people are just leaving it on the ground beside the dumpster.

Pecos County has even had to send out a crew every day to check the dumpsters.

Whatever they find, they try to put in the bins.

Now the city and county are looking at getting rid of the dumpsters and going to individual trash containers for homeowners.

No word on the price tag yet but it would be tacked on to your water bill.

If you spot anyone leaving their trash outside of bins, call authorities as it is considered illegal dumping.
