Half ton of trash pickup up from grasslands patch

WATFORD CITY, N.D. (AP) -- The U.S. Forest Service is reminding people to take their trash home with them when visiting public lands.

The plea comes after employees picked up half a ton of garbage from a 48-acre area of the Little Missouri National Grasslands in western North Dakota.

Trash picked up by McKenzie Ranger District employees near Watford City included beverage cans, a broken lawnmower, vehicle parts, used ammunition, destroyed road signs and broken gas cans.

The garbage filled a flatbed trailer and three pickup truck beds. Some was taken to a recycling center and the rest to a dump. The Forest Service says the trash came from target shooters, hunters, people on off-highway vehicles and in campers, and from people using the area as a dumping grounds.
