HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A Harrisburg man has been arrested for taking money from people to dump trash and then illegally dumping it behind a city church.

Police say 48-year-old Charles Whittington was taken into custody this afternoon and has been charged with several offenses including criminal mischief and theft. They say Whittington took money from people who thought they were paying to have the trash legally taken to the dump but instead he illegally dumped it near the corner of Sycamore and South Cameron Street.

Dauphin County Commissioner said they cleaned up the site but that Whittington is just one of many offenders in the county.

"Enough is enough," said commissioner Mike Pries, who oversees the county's Illegal Dumping Task Force and Waste Management and Recycling Department. "We're serious about cracking down on illegal dumping and ridding our streets and neighborhoods of unsightly trash."

Pries requested the anyone who sees illegal dumping should call police or Dauphin County's Waste Management and Recycling Department at 717-982-6772.
