The Watauga Sheriff’s Office reported this morning that the garbage dumped on US 421 in the pre-dawn hours Friday came from a High Country Waste truck, and the company crews returned to the scene to assist DOT and Cove Creek firemen with the clean-up. Company officials admitted the mistake caused the mess along US 421 north of Boone.
