valley of the couches

Walking path Between Penny Lane and Old Town Road — Walking in the woods and came upon this crazy site - a beautiful path marred by abandoned couches, chairs, TVs....and plenty of construction debris....seems like its been going on for years. I guess this is where people who are too cheap to buy a dump sticker unload their unwanted detrius....

This litter and other litter is caused by the fact that Wareham charges for dump stickers and limit what can be disposed of by residents at transfer station. Dumping trash behind the old Staples seems to be a popular spot too.

cover them in form fitting cement and call it art.

Yeah, right.

Blame it on our nominal dump sticker fee.

You're a moron.

Mr Beiber, If someone had the choice to dump legally at the dump for free or illegally for free in the woods which do you think they would choose? Thanks for replying to my comment, My niece loves your music and will be tickled that you replied. I can't wait to tell her what a nice young man you are.

If the fine for dumping was $1,000 do you think people would think twice?  What's the cost of dumpster?  The disposal companies deliver and pick up.  How easy can it be?


You see barriers being put up everywhere to try and stop this kind of illegal activity.  But you have create very high fines that are enforced, or make it very difficult to back a truck or trailer into an area.

I believe they would choose the dump.

Litter, on the other hand, does not discriminate where it ends up.

Fines for dumping are an option but rarely enforced and only if the people are caught.People will think about large fines but will dump any how, just like thinking about speeding and the chance of getting a ticket.  Putting barriers up at every spot people could dump things is not practical and are often as unsightly as the trash being dumped. Sometimes the fees you get are not worth the problems they cause by having them, in my opinion this is one of them. The less restrictive the policy is the more that will comply with it.

People don't comply because they're lazy and self-centered.
