Dumpers are at it again!

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?"
