Marbo Cave Cleanup Update #4

I decided to drive through the Marbo Cave area one last time and something magical happened that I was not expecting: The Matson Corporation had brought an entire cargo container to clear up trash from the area. It seems that some people do care about that area. Here’s a short video of what I saw and a time lapse of me clearing out a storm drain.

 

Marbo Cave Update V3.0

I’ve put quite a lot of time into trying to clean up the area around and the road leading up to the Marbo Cave. The illegal dumping never seems to stop in this area and unless someone actually receives punishment for some of the following actions there isn’t really much that I can do on my own:

  • Start tire fires
  • Dump large appliances
  • Torching a vehicle to dispose of it
  • Dump large amounts of household trash
  • Dump trash or appliances in the middle of the road

I suppose that I might clear a little more brush out of the area but my time on Guam grows short. I really have no desire to serve as someone’s personal garbage service and would rather do some more work at the only animal shelter on the island: Guam Animals in Need (GAIN). I’ll close this post off with some of the last photos I took of my cleanup in the area. Perhaps one day a group of people will care enough to keep what should be a beautiful area relatively clean? I see a cop car drive through the area once in a while, perhaps they’ll catch a few of the people who are too lazy to find a dumpster?

Marbo Cave Cleanup Update

Good evening everybody, I don’t have much to say in this post and just felt like using some photos and video to show how cleaning up this particular road has gone. Working during the day is miserable and the sweat never stops (nor does the illegal dumping here). At least the jungle will take some time to grow back once I push it off the road.

Marbo Cave Cleanup

On many trails that I’ve driven through I’ve often picked up some trash along the way. This time however what I am passing by is a little more severe and I feel obligated to to more. I also don’t live over 80 miles away from the Marbo Cave so it’s much easier to do more than fill up the pickup bed with trash. The Marbo Cave is on the northeastern side of Guam and is quite a beautiful area. It’s also littered with an obscene amount of appliances, electronics, tires, human waste, and general garbage. Some point soon I will post some nice pictures of the area but for now I’ll put up some pictures of what I have cleaned up and need to work on some more. Hopefully, those of you reading this will also pick up some trash along the way to your favorite wheeling or hiking spot.
