LITTER HOTLINE - February 7, 2007

I just turned the page of the calendar today! This means we have 49 days of winter left.

The daffodil bulbs are showing through the snow, but we can now say that Spring is around the corner. It is time for plans to be made for spring cleaning, but we need to dispose of our trash in a way that is not detrimental to the environment, obnoxious to our neighbors, and is within the law.

The pictures on the right show two illegal trash dumps along Rt. 7, which is the Stumptown-Russett Road. Just this weekend, another sofa, box springs, cabinet and four tires were added to the piles.

There is a litter hot line number, 1-800-322-5530, given to me by Judy Wolfram. I called this number and the anti-litter program is under the direction of the Division of Environmental Protection. They will ask your name, address, and location of the trash. The name can be kept confidential. They are several weeks behind in their work, but seemed very eager to help.

I started checking to see just what can be done with many kinds of trash, and we will include the information next week.

Calhoun is known for its natural beauty. Help keep it clean.
