Hartwick Pair Dumped Garbage

In New Lisbon, DEC Charges

HARTWICK – The discovery of an illegal garbage pile in New Lisbon has led to charges against two Hartwick residents, the state Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) reported today.

Devan Hazen, 19, and Tara Baker, 20, were both ticketed with misdemeanor charges of unlawful disposal of more than 10 cubic yards of solid waste.

When the garbage pile was discovered, conservation officers dug through the garbage until they found an envelope with an address on it.  When Officer Timothy Card visited the address and interviewed the resident, he learned that a garbage removal service had recently completed a job at the home.
