Stawinski released a statement that said:

 “Our business owners were tired of walking out of their businesses and seeing piles of trash that belonged in a dump and not across from their places of work. We took that tip and showed up under the cover of night and caught two construction trucks on the verge of dumping more trash, but we stopped it. We want our community to know that we take your tips seriously. We embrace County Executive Angela Alsobrooks’ mandate to keep our neighborhoods free of trash. We are all proud of where we work and live and we are putting illegal dumpers on notice. If you illegally dump commercial trash in our neighborhoods, you will face arrest.”
