The primary reason that there are no public trash cans outside of the Decker’s Resort, is that it would become a dumping ground for campers and visitors to the Resort. This is also done to prevent wildlife from being accustomed to finding a quick meal, endangering it’s life, and potentially putting the public at risk. The merchants at the Decker’s Resort appreciate your cooperation in this matter.
The U.S. Forest Service provides dumping facilities for the public who have paid the daily or overnight fees, posted at each day-use and campground area. Whenever possible, the practice of “Pack in in, Pack it out” is encouraged. For tips on this, click here! https://www.nps.gov/articles/leave-no-trace-seven-principles.htm
The other option for properly disposing trash while visiting our mountain community, would be to take you trash and disposables to Douglas County Satellite Transfer station. For more information, click here. https://www.douglas.co.us/land/rural-living/trash/
