Newtown Police are trying to figure out who has been dumping medical waste on the side of the road.  Complaints have been filed about the waste on Plumtrees Road in the area of Taunton Hill Road, near the Bethel town line.  The littering has been taking place over the past year, on at least 7 separate occasions.  While the waste has been dumped by one home, Newtown Police say it does not appear that the complainant is a target.
