NORTH TOLEDO (WTOL) - Joan Rowe has lived in this north Toledo neighborhood since the 1950s, so she knows the lay of the land.
She knows what doesn't belong there. We're talking all sorts of trash -- in bags, in trees. There's even food and clothing. "There's tires in there back," she says. There's even Christmas trees that someone dumped.
The mess covers about a five-block radius at the end of Rowe's street. It's supposed to be a no dumping zone. But obviously, "They're not listening," Rowe says.
As block watch leader, she plans to get the no dumping enforced, especially since the sign is posted.
