Measure-Z funds abandoned camps clean-up, More than 1,300lbs of trash removed

HUMBOLDT COUNTY, Calif. (KIEM)-More than 1,300 pounds of trash was removed from abandoned camps along Humboldt Bay Wildlife Refuge this week.

The Eureka Police Department’s Community Safety Engagement Team or C-SET and the parks and waterfront ranger partnered with the Timber Heritage Association to clean-up plastic, needles and hazardous waste from vulnerable and fragile environments.

The parks and waterfront ranger position is funded by Measure-Z.

Voters in November passed Measure-Z, a half-cent sales tax, which helps pay for maintaining and enhancing public safety and essential services.
