My neighbor has an easement road across my property to access

This answer was rated:

My neighbor has an easement road across my property to access his property. It is defined as a 40 ft. easement. Our road has a cul-de-sac, because we are located in rural Placer Co. and there is a need for larger trucks to be able to turn around in order to exit our dead end road. My neighbor has dumped a large amount of green waste in the roadway in the cul-de-sac, saying that the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection is going to shred the the cuttings and he has no place that can be accessed by them, due to the fact that he has installed a privacy gate at the beginning of his property. My problem is that when CDF shreds the material it will be shredded on to my property, thus leaving waste on my property without my permission. What are my rights?

Good evening. He has only the right to use the access easement for ingress and egress. He does not own the property and has no legal right to use the easement property for anything else. His privacy gate is not your issue, but he has no right to have anything dumped on your property. Give him notice to have it all removed immediately or you will file a suit against him for the cost of removing it plus punitive damages for his willful malfeasance.
