Last week, I was out in the woods with a buddy of mine. We both appreciate October’s weather and the opportunity of spending some time as we did.
I know I am not the only one to experience the dismay of seeing garbage dumped along a forest service road. It completely defies all reason why anyone would dump an old electric stove out in a wilderness area.
Nowadays, with digital cameras, GPS devices and a pencil and notebook, details of these things can be recorded and reported. It took an investment of perhaps 15 minutes to file a report online, but I felt it was the proper thing to do.
I’m almost certain that a recycling depot would have accepted an old GE Rapid Clean II electric stove.
It was too big to fit into my small pickup that has a canopy on the box of the truck, otherwise I would have tried to load it and bring it back to town.
I am hoping the person or persons who dumped it there will be tracked down and made to clean up the mess.
