REDDING, Calif. - The owner of Legacy Furniture and Mattress Gallery in Redding is frustrated that people are using her business as a dumping site.

"We've had issues in the past, but this is the most it's happened," says the owner of Legacy Furniture.

The owner tells Action News Now the most recent case happened Monday afternoon, prompting her to post photos of the issue on social media.

"So we're unloading trucks all day, we came inside and probably like half an hour, walked outside and there was just a dump," says the owner." It's frustrating knowing that people are just dumping all over Redding. It's a city-wide problem."

The furniture store has been targetted three times in the past two weeks, according to the owner. The last time it happened, she was surprised to find a pile of junk behind her business and also near a greenway.

The three times that it's happened, she says she's left cleaning up the mess. 

"In the past, we've taken it to the dump ourselves and so it becomes our problem to get rid of," says the owner.

Action News Now spoke to a local business owner in the same shopping area as the furniture store. She says when she first moved into her location, she had a similar problem but says she's noticed dumping around her business is becoming less common.

"In the back there was a huge mess where the dumpster was," says Sandra Dodge-Streich, owner of a reptile store in Redding.

The owner of Legacy Furniture says she will be installing cameras to try and catch the people who are dumping on her property.
