Trash Dogs tackle Rogue refuse

By Jane Stebbins, The Curry Coastal Pilot

Thirteen Trash Dogs (including new Dog Todd) trekked 19 miles up the Rogue River Road to collect the contents of an illegally dumped trailer filled with garbage.

"Walking the 6 miles of the road the Dogs found a number of bags drivers disposed of," said group leader Ed Gross. "Mostly bottles, cans - stuff drivers pitch out the window as they cruise up the road on vacation or on their way to work."

The four-hour mission was the 121st the Dogs have completed in the past seven years.

This search resulted in the discovery of tires, a steel sheet, about 30 feet of steel cable and a pickup canopy, which had to be retrieved over the edge of a steep slope.

Metal was taken to the Curry Transfer and Recycling Center for recycling.
