Illegal dumping has become an increasingly big problem in Ector County, but officials are taking steps to fight back.
During Tuesday's commissioners' meeting, the purchase of five more dumpsters was approved for the county.
These dumpsters will be strategically placed on the west side of Ector County to make it easier for people to get rid of their trash,
The cost of the dumpsters is capped at $30,000.
Commissioners also want to remind the public that illegal dumping is a crime and officials are working to crack down on it.
