Dumpers are at it again!
By Jerry Cegelske


November 17, 2005

A recent trip on S. Tongass to check on some reported dumping revealed that Alaska Dept. of Transportation has been removing new growth from the ditches so they drain better and allow a clearer view on the turns.  It looks nice and clean because they also took the trash with them that has been deposited there over the last few years.  What doesn't look so good is the engine block and the trash that continues to be dumped on the South end.

I cannot understand why people feel they need to dump their trash for the rest of us to look at and to clean up.  It will be interesting when I hand them the citation on the trash and ask them "Why?"
