What's the world comin' to!:p
"It's really gross, here's another one." That's what Cesar Meras says to me when he finds yet another bottle filled with urine that's been tossed out of a window by a passing motorist, possibly a truck driver.
They are called "trucker bombs" and the problem isn't new, but over the last couple of years it's gotten worse.
Meras and a crew from the Department of Ecology's Northwest Region pick up garbage just off I-90 near North Bend. Their boss, Peter Christiansen, tells me this has been a problem for as long as Ecology has been picking up garbage -- about 40 years. Christiansen says they learned right where to look, an area like the first westbound exit after Snoqualmie Pass. In talking about truckers, he says, ”They'll roll through, dump their pee bottle or whatever else they want to dump and move on."
