It’s a road, not a dump

Dear Editor,

I would like to thank the following residents of Apple Tree Community for contributing to our Earth Day Cleanup last month: Ray Ryder, Mark and Vera Jerome, Mike Jerome, Bob and Martha Smith, Sergio Centeno, Armando Alvarado, Vic Garcia, Megan Garcia, Henry Hendrickson and Steve Noah. Thanks also to Talbott Enterprises Inc. for supplying lunch for the crew.

We started at the 105 exit and cleaned up trash along County Road 335 from there to Apple Tree Community. I was both amazed and appalled by what was picked up. We filled 144 30-gallon trash bags.

The guys also pulled all kinds of weird stuff up from the river bank. You know, things that really should go to the landfill like an old dishwasher, tires, discarded office furniture, lots of bottles and cans, paper, etc.

I wish people would take responsibility for their garbage and dispose of it properly. County Road 335 is the main means of access to several businesses, Mountain Shadows, Apple Tree Community, and other residences. Not the dump.

Thanks again to all who helped.

Trudi Garcia
