Eyesore on upper Carmi

No matter how often I see it, I am amazed and disgusted at the people who will dump their household garbage, furniture, appliances, barbecues and other refuse along the side of the road on Beaverdell Road, Stewart Creek forestry road and the small side roads.

I have to wonder what type of person finds it acceptable to dump their crap Ń to be cleaned up by others or left to sit for years. The dump is just as far up the mountain a bit further north. Is it the $5 fee you don’t want to spend? Or is it more like general disrespect?

Forestry and the RDOS cannot be everywhere to monitor anti-dumping. For this reason, I think hefty fines should be levied to the dumpers and the reporting parties should receive half the proceeds.
