Police Report Dumping Incident in Birdsboro Area

BIRDSBORO PA – Another incident of what appears to be local environmental vandalism has occurred at a municipally-owned Birdsboro area property, the Robeson Township Police Department reported Wednesday (Dec. 7, 2022).

Rather than involve rubber tires – as did somewhat similar incidents discovered last week in Lower, Upper, and West Pottsgrove, and Douglass (Montgomery) townships – the dumping that attracted Robeson police attention consisted of “several loads of wood chips,” the department said. Police currently list it as a potential charge of disorderly conduct.

It’s not yet publicly known if the separate and different incidents are in any way related.

Police stated the Robeson Township Public Works Department found the wood chip piles on property the township owns at 633 White Bear Rd., Birdsboro (at top). It’s occupied by a building “located between the Robeson Elementary Center and Cocalico Road,” they said. The public works department indicated the dumping occurred Tuesday (Dec. 6) sometime between 8 and 11 a.m.

An “unknown person,” who police suggested “may have been responsible,” also may have been using or driving a green-colored “Ford F-350 or Super Duty” truck dump body with a wooden box, their report stated.

The police department asked for anyone who was “traveling in the area and may have witnessed a vehicle dumping wood chips” to call them at 610-582-4276. Information also can be provided anonymously online at the department’s CrimeWatch “Submit A Tip” page, here.

Police counterparts in the Pottsgroves and Douglass townships are similarly searching for leads in the dumping of hundreds of rubber tires in parks and other publicly owned lands that occurred over what appears to be a series of days surrounding the Thanksgiving holiday.
