Large piles of debris have been popping up in Schuylkill and Carbon counties. The large piles contain garbage along with construction and demolition debris. Kline Township Police in Schuylkill County  turned over the investigation to the Department of Environmental Protection, which will determine if the solid waste management act was violated.
DEP Spokesperson Colleen Connolly says the debris is not toxic.
" It appears to us that from the evidence and the documents that we took from the piles that these piles originated in the New York- New Jersey area of Staten Island"
 If you have any information on his investigation , you are asked to contact D-E-P.
