Litter Bugs!

With our Sucker River clean up efforts just around the corner, this news release seems fitting to share.

Conservation officers report litter on Minnesota roadways, waterways

(Released February 23, 2012)
Weekly activity reports from conservation officers (COs) with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) are littered with evidence of various types of refuse being discarded along Minnesota roads and waterways.

“We’re seeing everything from wooden fish house blocking materials on lakes to old appliances in roadway ditches,” said Col. Jim Konrad, DNR Enforcement Division director.

Littering is a misdemeanor with a fine of up to $1,000.

Konrad said the DNR wants everyone to keep roadways and waterways clean by properly disposing of used materials with their local refuse haulers or at their local landfill. Konrad added that litter tarnishes nature’s beauty, destroys wildlife habitats and ruins many opportunities for recreation.
