Illegal dumping near Richland Creek Greenway

A neighbor reports that illegal dumping is taking place near the Richland Creek Greenway:
I live near the corner of 53rd and Wyoming and haved noticed that many folks have taken to dumping yard waste along the greenway fence. Many large piles accumulate containing sticks, limbs, and bagged clippings.

Although this is only mildly annoying, I am mostly concerned about this tract becoming a neighborhood dump. Just the other day I saw a guy cruising by slowly with a trailer-load filled with junk. He seemed to be casing the street, trying to find a place to dump his stash. Perhaps he would've had I not been giving him the stare-down. I just wanted to raise awareness to this situation before our block begins to look like Samford and Son.
There are more responsible ways to deal with yard waste and household waste. Metro Public Works provides brush collection services on a seasonal basis, and Davidson County residents can also take their brush to the Bordeaux Mulch Facility. Many household items can be taken to one of the city's residential waste and recycling centers. There are specific procedures for hazardous household waste, too.
