Anybody want a lungful of lead dust?

Screenshot from a video posted on Facebook, showing removal of debris from interior demolition at 711 Chimborazo Boulevard. This appears to be someone dumping a wheelbarrow of wall plaster down from the 2nd story porch.

From the original post:

Glad to see someone finally fixing this place up. I just wished they would stop this type of demolition. This whole area is contaminated with possibly lead base paint and whatever else!

I called the city of Richmond a couple days ago to report and was told that the illegal demolition would be taken care of by one of the city’s inspectors.
I have not seen any inspectors and the dumping has not stopped.

I’m turning to you all for help because the city is not doing anything.
