Dumping Trash in the Woods   1 comment

I enjoy walking in the woods.  Even more I enjoy walking in the woods without seeing garbage in them.

Last Sunday afternoon I went for a walk in the woods near my home.  I took a trail–a back route–to Ben Burton Park, part of the site of the former Tallassee Shoals Hydroelectric Facility, on the Middle Oconee River, in Athens-Clarke County, Georgia.  Immediately adjacent to the cul-de-sac, where I embarked on the trail, I saw the mockery of a den.

After my walk, I returned home, retrieved my digital camera, and took these photographs, which I shared with the Solid Waste Department and my local government commissioner.  The commissioner’s prompt and determined response was encouraging.  He has suggested some strategies the local government can implement to deal with this problem of continuous dumping.

I hope for the best.
