Bags of garbage

The photos of bags of garbage on this blog do not magically appear. I fill the garbage bag up in 15 min. to an hour and take the bag to be picked up by the city. Most garbage comes from little bits everywhere that add up to one large bag when collected into a group.

I cleaned the eastern edge of Whitehorse rapids. I took out one bag of collected garbage from the shoreline. The second bag in the photo is the work of another person , I assume "Joe".

I cleaned at Park Paquin. One bag of garbage was collected. This is the last time I will clean Park Paquin. The amount of bags of dog feces I find sickens and angers me, but the final straw was the oily water coming out of the city pumping station.

I cleaned the eastern shoreline of Whitehorse rapids/Cheval Blanc rapides. There was a collection of garbage that had to be bagged and brought to city garbage containers. The shoreline has many pieces of tiny plastic on it that I can not and did not pick up.

DON'T DRINK THE RAW RIVER WATER. A dead animal in the water. Larger than a cat, so I would guess a raccoon.With a stick I pulled it ashore. I expect flies-maggots to eat it in a few days. I did not have the proper gloves/shovel to handle the disposal.
