Owner of Mellwood Arts Center cleans up illegal trash

Louisville, KY - LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Mellwood Arts Center has finally cleaned up its act.

After WAVE  was made aware of the illegal dumping ground behind the Mellwood Arts Center in March, we brought it to the attention of MSD. They discovered it was the center's owner who was dumping various construction supplies and other debris. When the owner was contacted by MSD, they promised action.

We returned to the Mellwood Arts Center on May 27 and found the entire area cleaned up, just as promised. The Center was also fined $24,000 for the dumping, and neighbors are thankful the area has been cleaned up.
