The first clean up request to the Forest Service stirred up controversy, but a similar clean-up event is being approved for this weekend.  Last August, the Forest Service said “no” to a planned volunteer trash pick-up off of China Hat Road near Bend.  Spokesperson Jean-Nelson Dean says the difference between the current request and the one that was rejected is the fact that those asking to do the clean-up gave the Forest Service more time.  According to an article in the Bulletin, last August a teen from Southern California was visiting Central Oregon and noted the trash.  He quickly tried to rally a volunteer clean-up; but the request  was denied because there wasn't enough time to organize safety training for the volunteers.  Jean Nelson Dean explains that sometimes hypodermic needles and other hazardous materials are left in the forest.
