UPDATE MAY 17: A Las Vegas woman got results Wednesday after unexpectedly finding a huge pile of debris in her yard several weeks ago.
13 Action News aired the story of Lisa Sperling Monday, and local politician Michele Fiore saw it. She decided to get her team to help.
Sperling discovered the yard waste at the top of her driveway near Durango Drive and Iron Mountain Road after an April windstorm.
Clark County wouldn't help clear it because it was on her private property, and it would've cost hundreds of dollars to have a company do it.
Fiore called Tommy White with Laborer's Union Local 872 who lent manpower and equipment. She also obtained a dumpster from Western Elite.
It was all free of charge to Sperling.
"We actually have this issue happen quite often and people don't know it," Fiore said.
It took about 30 minutes to get rid of the pile that Sperling realized was a fire risk when she saw lower layers of the debris smoldering.
"This isn't even dumping in the driveway," White said. "This is dumping in front of your house. So this is really uncalled for. This shouldn't be happening within our Ward Six."
White says the pieces of wood taken from the pile will be used in a wood-burning oven to make pizza.
