  1. yuck...not a very environmentally friend post..kind of disappointing this is supported.

  2. I understand what you are saying, but you must realize that this is the only option some people have other than throwing the stuff in the forest or into the river. Illegal dumping hurts us all and this is a way to help prevent it.
