SOCORRO, TX – Piles of trash are littering a vacant piece of property behind a neighborhood in Socorro.

Manuel Garnica, who lives near the illegal dump site off Trejo Road, said it has been that way for years.

Pickup trucks loaded with trash drive into the patch of desert and unload the waste, he said.

Garnica showed our NewsChannel 9 crew the mess. We found hundreds of tires, broken television sets, old couches and even car bumpers hanging from trees.

Garnica said he just wants the mess cleaned up and barriers installed to keep people out.

We're working to find out who the property belongs to. Stay with for updates.
