MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

The Tennessee Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Alabama. However, some spots are not beautiful.

Huntsville Police are cracking down on illegal dump sites.

Illegal dump sites can be found from Blake Bottom Road to Oak Path Lane to Bateson Street.

People are dumping everything from building materials, to batteries, to clothing.

It's an eyesore, it's unhealthy, and it's illegal.

There is a dumpsite on Carmichael Avenue. Old tires, tree stumps, and even TV's can be found at the illegal dumping ground. The dump is smelly and nasty. Law enforcement has had enough.

Huntsville Police Department is joining forces with Operation Green Team and the Alabama State Board of Health to closely monitor known dump sites.

People caught illegally dumping will be arrested and fined, and will possibly face the court system.

If you know of someone illegally dumping, you can make an anonymous call to Crime Stoppers at 256-53-CRIME, or go to Crime Stoppers online and send an anonymous e-mail or text.

People who send in viable tips are eligible for up to a $1,000 reward.
