SPOKANE, Wash. — More than 150 bags of garbage were removed from a three-acre, illegal dump site near I-90 and Sprague.

The Department of Ecology Eastern Region’s adult litter crew went to the site to pick up the trash, and were surprised with some help from the Bureau of Land Management. The BLM team showed up with a trailer when they heard about the mess.

Those found littering can be fined anywhere from $50 to $5,000 in Washington state. To report illegal dumping or littering, call 1-866-LITTER1.
