Highway 299 cleanup

The North Fork Grange spent Cinco de Mayo cleaning Highway 299 from Eagle Rock to the Canyon Creek bridge at the Junction City Store.

The North Fork Grange spent Cinco de Mayo cleaning Highway 299 from Eagle Rock to the Canyon Creek bridge at the Junction City Store. Along the way they found an assortment of trash. Everything from car parts, tires, stove parts, a car seat, cans, bottles, and everything else you can think of. All of that trash was headed for the Trinity River and most likely came from local Trinity County folks who do not cover their load to the dump. The group formed up at the recently reopened Junction City Park; after the event Will Shaw prepared tacos, margaritas and potluck fixin’s. Thanks to Ed Brown for helping serve the tacos.

It's sad to be driving down the road and see piles of trash that people leave because they don't want to pay the dump fees.

WendlandandMark,
That's a pile of trash picked up by the North Fork Grange highway cleanup crew. Community groups throughout Trinity clean up our roadsides and leave the accumulated trash piles to be picked up by Caltrans crews. Generally the piles are only there a day or two.
