For Immediate Release
July 10, 2020

An unprecedented amount of trash is being generated in the Plumas National Forest and it is causing a hazard for campers and area wildlife.

Illegal dumping from dispersed camping in the region is causing the problem. “Dispersed camping” is the term used for camping anywhere in the National Forest OUTSIDE of a designated campground where limited to no services such as trash removal, bathrooms, fire pits or bear-proof boxes are provided.

When the illegally dumped trash is added to the refuse being generated by registered campers, day use visitors, and boaters – it has made it impossible for the campground hosts to manage. This situation is a pervasive problem being reported throughout California’s National Forests.

Outdoors in Plumas is doing everything we can to meet this problem but we cannot do it without your help and the help of the community.

To meet the ongoing issue we have added extra staff, extra trash pick-up days, and we have added the maximum number of trash bins allowed and that can fit in the individual campgrounds. Please help keep our campgrounds, boat launches and day-use areas clean and safe. Dumping is illegal and the trashing of our forests, campgrounds, and community is everyone’s responsibility.

Please help Plumas National Forest by:

Pack Out Your Trash – You can help this issue by packing out your trash and disposing of it at home. We thank you for all you can do!

If You See Something Report It – If you see illegal or suspicious dumping (dispose of furniture, automotive or industrial parts, oversized items, and hazardous products) please report any details to local authorities.

Support our Campground Staff – Our staff care deeply about nature and the community. They have been working tiring schedules since Memorial Day and they are doing everything they can. Please support them during this time of need.

Thank you for your help, patience and understanding. This is a real crisis that is affecting the state of California and every person’s contributions to keeping the area clean and safe is very much appreciated.
