Charlotte County sheriff's deputies said they tracked down Andres Lopez, 33, in Englewood East after they found paperwork with his name on it in the pile of debris.
Lopez admitted he dropped off the pile of construction debris and palm fronds in the lot because the landfill was closed for the day and he needed his trailer emptied out for other tasks.
The South Florida Sun Sentinel said Lopez was a convicted felon with two previous arrests in Charlotte County.
