"We are starting this huge crackdown now for the first time. There is no excuse for people being unable to have their garbage picked up by the parish service, or to haul it themselves to the approved dump" the sheriff said. "'We in Tangipahoa Parish benefit from the tourists on our roads and waterways and besides being proud of our appearance we also have financial interest in the cleanliness of the parish from a tourism point of view." the sheriff added. "Everyone should now be on notice. if they dump illegally they will face arrest and prosecution "' the sheriff said.
