BLM Cody and Wyo-Ben Take Out the Trash
By Lisa Marks, Geologist, Cody Field Office
Wyo-Ben, Inc. of Greybull recently assisted the Cody Field Office by removing garbage from public lands northwest of Sheep Mountain in the Bighorn Basin.
In early June, an old camper was dumped at a scenic overlook off Highway 310 in an area known for the “pie pans.” This beautifully eroded hogback ridge looks like a series of pie pans leaning against the side of the steeply dipping ridge.
When Wyo-Ben became aware of the dumping, the company quickly volunteered to remove the camper before it could deteriorate any further, creating a larger mess.
Illegal dumping on public lands is an ongoing and difficult challenge the BLM faces. Partnerships like this make a difference.
The BLM appreciates Wyo-Ben’s commendable efforts and dedication to keeping public lands clean.
