Public lands are for everyone to enjoy; but Deschutes County Sheriff Larry Blanton says unfortunately a few people can ruin the experience for many. He says illegal dumping is a problem they see way too much of on our public lands. "An old coach and old chair, we all have our favorite place to walk, and frankly if you care about the area and the community, like we all do it really angers you as you walking on a favorite trail or road and you see where someone has thrown the old couch they don't want anymore or sofa or old mattress.” Blanton says if you get a license plate or vehicle description they will act fast to try and stop people who are dumping trash illegally.
