Description

When a fire destroyed the St. Vincent de Paul Charity warehouse one week before Christmas, the citizens of Detroit donated thousands of items to replace the loss. WXYZ exposed a demolition contractor taking advantage of the charity. The investigation discovered instead of delivering the debris to a licensed landfill, the contractor had been dumping the charred remains all over town. WXYZ found four illegal dump sites in Wayne County, including one right next to an elementary school. (July 11, 12, 25, 1996)
