Report Details

We picked up two buckets of trash which we later took home to sort which was mostly plastic, Styrofoam, pop cans, and some cardboard. However, we did find a large orange canister ( about a 10 gallon size ) with a label stating refrigerant gas and drove it to Ft. Stevens to directly hand it over to the rangers so it would be properly handled.
