ECTOR COUNTY, Texas —
Ector County is getting more help to combat illegal dumping.
Two local companies, West Tex Disposal and Basin Disposal, stepped up and donated 30-yard dumpsters.
Officials say the containers are needed and will be used to help with the overflow of trash they're seeing from highway pickups.
A 30-yard dumpster typically holds about 3.5-5 tons, or 7,000-10,000 pounds of garbage.
