ANSWER:
Thank you for using our FAQ system. Because this is Railroad Right of Way the County does not have jurisdiction to go in and do any cleaning, it is considered private property, however you can contact the Railroad directly regarding illegal dumping around the tracks. It appears that this section of railroad is owned by Union Pacific Railroad. Please use the contact number below. Thanks.
