On May 4, the Pacific Trail Riders, a local truck quad and dirt bike club, and the Oregon Department of Forestry organized a garbage cleanup of Pipeline Road behind the Astoria Column area.
Sponsors of the event were Recology Western Oregon, which donated a large dumpster, L&D Racetech, which donated a quad, trailer and garbage bags, and ODF, which contributed garbage bags. David Bailey of ODF helped with garbage location areas.
Manpower for the cleanup was provided by the Pacific Trail Riders and Dean Larson Custom Excavating and Trails End Recovery.
The group filled up about half of a very large dumpster, said Chris Geisler, president of Pacific Trail Riders.
We thought that these guys deserved some recognition for their efforts to clean up the land, and provide a space for young people to go and have fun, said Rachel Marriott, office manager for Trails End Recovery and Custom Excavating.
