BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Game and Fish Department is encouraging outdoor recreationists to keep it clean this summer.

The agency says people using recreational areas should put trash in the proper receptacles, or take it home with them if garbage cans are full or not available. The department says it’s not unusual to see trash stacked up around full garbage cans.

Officials say Styrofoam containers that aren’t biodegradable, worn ties, old mattresses and kitchen appliances are among the trash that has been found in public use areas. With the Fourth of July approaching, fireworks will be added to the mix.

Littering violations can be reported to the Report All Poachers hotline, at 1-800-472-2121.
