---- — ROCKPORT — One Rockport resident may have decided to skip the proper disposal process.
The Department of Public Works notified police Tuesday about a couch in the middle of Whale Cove Road. Then, later in the day, the DPW reported that a fridge had been left in the middle of the road, police said.
The items were removed by the DPW, according to police.
