A Sewell man has identified himself as the man who was illegally dumping numerous printers ink cans in a wooded area off of Collier Drive and surrendered to Gloucester Township Police on Tuesday.

He was charged with two counts of illegal dumping in violation of a local ordinance and released pending his court date.
