Shoreline Litter Post, Again...

2 posts in this topic

I apologize if there have been lots of posts similar to this one, but I see it getting worse instead of better. We've owned a little property on a lake in the Walker area for 4 full years now.

Every year I go around picking up a bunch of [PoorWordUsage] that apparently people can't seem to dispose of. I will hardly mention the beer bottles and cans that I find riddled on our property every spring (we have a Cty road that splits our property). This year alone I found one large styrofoam bait cooler, one five gallon bucket, and 4 worn out car/truck tires. This is only including 200 feet of shoreline! The tires makes me mad because they are unsightly. Now I get to pay to dispose of them because someone is too cheap to pony up themselves. The two bait buckets (150 feet apart) I'm assuming are ice fisherman because they weren't there late last fall.

I realize there is nothing really to be done, except to clean up after these slobs. What kind of fine can someone get if they get caught disposing of tires in a lake? Would fellow lakeshore owners confront someone if they saw someone dumping in their lake? We're on a beautiful lake with 14 foot clarity. Just had to get it off my chest, and hopefully others aren't experiencing the same thing I am.

Not to your extent, but we do pick up any trash we find in the lake, whether on ice or in boat. Teaching the grandkids that from the time they started going with. Hopefully it will rub off and they will always do it, and teach their frineds as well. Last year Bald Eagle was a mess during ice...
