Default Disgusting Land Use, Newaygo County

I found this yesterday on state land in Newaygo County, 8 miles or so west of Big Rapids.

Pics really don't do justice, it's just a cheapo camera.















Pictures really don't do justice. There are easily 10,000 shell casings strewn all over the fucking place, empty ammo boxes, shot up tv's, radios, etc.

It's a fucking wasteland. I spent about 2 hours picking shit up today, and plan on heading back there tomorrow.

Anyone in the area that would like to help, the help would be appreciated.

I did find some reciepts with EBT numbers and partial credit card numbers, who can pull those numbers up and find out who caused this shit?

It is bullshit like this that gets land closed for public use.

Turn those number into the police. They can get a littering ticket if nothing else.

Yes. It needs to be cleaned up before the area gets closed down.

If you go out there and pick any of that up, MAKE SURE you collect any identifying info available.
Be on the look out for meth making materials too.

Keep a safe distance and call the police if you find any of these things!

I can give you tips on how to have those people taken care of.
This is exactly what we have been combating in Muskegon and Oceana counties through the Two Trackers Forest Clean Up for 13 years.

Unfortunately disposal of all that junk will have to come out of someones pocket.
I think the cost of a trailer of junk to the dump is around $20 call your local dump for pricing.
Good luck to you guys.

Call the operators of your local landfill and tell them what you are doing, Youd be surprised what they will do for a little positive community PR. Then get some local news outlet to run a story on what your doing and make sure you mention the generosity of the landfill.

it is amazing how many area's like that are actually on state land. Our club is working on putting a forest cleanup together in the Allegan State Game area. There is a rediculous amount of trash out there all over the place.

Unfortunately closing it off won't work on the pukes that did it. We can only hope Darwin takes over.
