Letter: Stay Safe on Green Up Day
To the Editor:
Green Up Day workers should use care when picking up trash. There are all sorts of things illegally disposed of that can hurt you if not handled properly. It would be naive to think no one was making methamphetamine in this area when it is occurring all over the state. As meth is an illegal drug and the making of it is a criminal offense, the disposal of the waste and paraphernalia used in the process is often done with no concern for those who may encounter it.
Meth cookers are not likely to be environmentalists who support recycling.
Should you find liter soda bottles with plastic tubes in their caps do not touch them. Be safe. Call the police.
