Garbage at Trail Heads & parking lots

New postby dave » Fri Oct 30, 2009 11:44 pm

This summer the Villeage of Tannersville went head-to-head with a group from NYC. It seems that they group kept dumping garbage around the village. This group has now changed their dumping grounds to DEC land. There was bags of garbage dumped at some of the parking lots to the Devil's path on the Platte Clove side. Also, the bank near the creek of the old Steenberg Road became a large dump site. You cannot see it from the parking lot. But, if you walk over near the creek, you can see hundreds of bags of garbage. If you see anyone dumping garbage in this area, you should contact the DEC.

I heard that the DEC caught the group, and they were convicted and fined heavily. We'll see what happens next summer when they return.

Yes, I can confirm this is the case.
