Millionaire residents fury that idyllic California town has turned into notorious dumping ground – with feces and trash spewed across ‘pristine’ landscape

Wealthy residents of the Santa Monica Mountains are outraged that beautiful acres of land purchased by the Trust for Public Land have sat idle for years and turned into a notorious landfill.

The nearly 1,300 acres of land along Deer Creek Road in Ventura County was acquired nearly two years ago by the Trust for Public Land for the Santa Monica Mountains National Reserve, the reported Thousand Oak Acorn.

Since then, it has remained untouched and turned into a makeshift dumping ground where people throw away hundreds of pieces of trash.

“This is the last part of the unspoiled area of ​​the Santa Monica Mountains. And this is what you see: mattress dumps, construction dumps, human feces, and we keep calling and nothing happens,” said an angry resident. ABC7.

“You can see that this waste was dumped here six months ago. It hasn’t been removed.’

Outraged neighbors, many of whom live in multimillion-dollar mansions, said they have complained to the city but nothing has been done.

The local news station has gathered evidence showing that there are remnants of a fire, which is worrying many if not properly controlled and could set the entire area on fire.

‘If you notice that part of the brush is not native. It catches fire very quickly…It’s just a matter of moments when someone throws away a cigarette,” the resident said.

Thousands of residents were forced to evacuate their homes as wildfires spread outside Los Angeles last week.

The devastating wildfire, dubbed the Post Fire, ignited on June 15 just 65 miles northwest of LA, scorching more than 14,000 acres.

Scientists are sounding the alarm about PM2.5 – tiny smoke particles that come from forest fires and can travel deep into people’s airways.

Particles from wildfires are among the finest types of airborne pollution, measuring 2.5 microns or less in diameter, according to the California Air Resources Board.

Because of their small size (about one-thirtieth of a human hair), they can cause a range of health problems that may not be immediately apparent.
