More than a dozen piles of storm debris and trash were thrown behind an abandoned home in Midtown Tulsa.
"Look how far it goes back it's very deep," said Stephanie Lewis as she walked FOX23 Dontaye Carter behind an abandoned home near Marion and East 24th Place to show him the piles of debris piling up.
She is just one of the many neighbors on this block tired and frustrated at people using this home as a dump.
"To think that someone can drive up in here and pretend they have a right to dump their trash here," said Jean Brower, who lives next door to the foreclosed home.
Brower says she and her son-in-law have tried running off the people dumping debris.
"I come out here to try to get there tag number and they didn't have the tag on there," she said.
"I think the people in the neighborhood think they are paying someone and then it just ends up in this backyard," said Lewis. "There are probably 20 truckloads and those people made $20 a truckload just to come dump it over in this backyard."
Lewis fears all the debris could attract rodents she doesn't want to this area.
"This is going to cause some rat problems and we already have that problem being so close to the river," she said.
FOX23 has learned the home was foreclosed on over the summer and Tulsa County turned it back over to OBN Bank and Trust. The city said they reported it to code enforcement that will be out there to inspect the yard.
"It's not a dump and there is a city dump," said Katherine Anderson, another neighbor.
They're just looking for someone to step in.
"It's beyond what we can do," said Lewis.
FOX23 reached out to OBN to let them know what was piling up behind the home. We have not heard back.
