I've noticed that litter such as beer cans, refrigeraters, mattresses, etc are becoming an on going and escalating issue within our community.
We live in a place in which many people only could hope to live... abundant with wildlife, beautiful scenery, and for the most part generous and courteous people.
Please use some common sense and don't litter our island... especially Tongass highway (North and South) as that is the first road that many see when they visit our very own and special version of "God's Country".
All too often, we take for granted the grander and beauty that surrounds us on a daily basis, so let's not mess it up with litter from those who are too lazy or too cheap to dispose of their waste properly.

While out driving around today, I was on an "unnamed mountain road when I passed by a group of two young men who had a refrigerator in the back of their pickup truck, and it seemed as though they were trying to gain access through a locked gate it appeared as though they didnt have the key to the lock from what I observed upon driving up on them.
Apparently I scared them off unbeknownst to me, and I continued up the road on my adventure. Upon my return down the mountain, I noticed that I must have scared them more than previously thought as I found the refrigerator dumped at the end of the entrance road of the gate that they were trying in vain to get into earlier My assumption must have been correct after all, it seems that they didnt have the key, or they couldnt get their bolt cutters to work (just a guess).
This is totally unacceptable and I only wish that I had carried my new camera with me, so I could have captured them, their license tag and vehicle.
Be careful folks, you never know where I may be lurking, and if I find you doing something so heinous as illegal dumping in such a beautiful place. I will eventually capture your activity and share it with law enforcement.
Grow up; pay the fee to take your trash to the dump and dispose of your trash properly of it as it should be done.
