Crosby Residents React To Illegal Dumping

Posted: Updated:
While the cleanup was happening at an abandoned gas station in Noonan, another illegal dumping was found about three miles north of Crosby.

If you look at this property when you drive by, it looks like a normal one, but local officials in Crosby found some illegal dumping going on here.

“Wednesday, I made a follow up call regarding the Noonan site, and they advised me that there may be some oil socks disposed of behind the Siegrist building,” says Divide County Deputy Zachary Shroeder. 

Shroeder arrived at the site, and found oil socks in some trash cans on the southwest side of the property. Unlike the Noonan situation, these socks are out in the open.

“It makes me angry because it's so stupid,” says Crosby resident Jeanne Erickson. “It's just stupid. They come in. They don't want to take care of our land.”

Erickson has lived in town for 30 years, but the site is close to her home.

“It may not be as large as the Noonan dumping, however, this one impacts the environment,” says Shroeder. “The wildlife. I mean you can hear the frogs chirping behind me.”

It may have already affected the wildlife in the area.  

“A major fine.” Erickson said. “I don't really know because it's lazy people that are doing it. Majority of the people do it correctly. It's just the few that are ruining it for everybody.”

Socks were also found on the northwest part of the property. 

Shroeder added they don't have an idea of how much radiation the socks have, but the next step is to have them cleaned up.
