Off of River St. next to the old brick kiln – not far from the junction of Rt. 105 is Auburn Street. It runs down to the Taunton River and the remnants of an old bridge that burned down(I think) some years ago. The street has been gated off by the town of Middleboro.
If you take a walk down Auburn Street as I did recently, you will see what I saw – an unregulated, unofficial, full blown, WTF-is-this, dump. Old trucks, fuel tanks, truck trailers, gas grills – you name it, it’s down there. The refuse runs all along the road and stops just steps away from the Taunton River – recently designated as a wild and scenic river. Wild is right … scenic?… not so much.
Here are some photos. The first couple show the latest illegal dumping at the entrance to the Taunton River Wildlife Management Area on River St. After those are pics of Auburn St., then a bit of the flooding on Summer and Murdoch Street, followed by some unrelated pictures of my cool doggie.
