Dumping in the desert is illegal. It is bad for the environment and it is bad for the wildlife that lives there. I and alot of my trail friends are tired of dumping in the desert and we will report it.Â Trail Watch volunteers are trained to report illegal dumping, so beware. Fines for dumping can cost you $500.00 and up.Â I have been involved in upto two trail clean up events each year for the last five years and it still amazes me what gets dumped in our desert. Trust me when I say that “Eyes and ears” are watching the desert along the River Mountains Loop Trail.Â Please bag it and can it at the curb.
