LePage declares Landowner Appreciation Cleanup Day

The Associated Press

AUGUSTA, Maine — Gov. Paul LePage is proclaiming Landowner Appreciation Cleanup Day to thank property owners who allow the use of their land for recreational purposes.

Volunteers are needed for Saturday’s event to help clean up properties where the state has identified illegal dumps.

Forest rangers and the small woodlot owners association have identified more than 100 illegal dump sites on private land throughout Maine. The forest service will supply trucks and trash bags to haul the discarded materials to nearby transfer stations, many of which have offered to waive fees for the materials.

Volunteers can call 800-750-9777 to offer their assistance.
