Mt Village Dump by mkgillman.
from his flickr
“Part of the dump in Mountain Village, Alaska. The locals have just set aside an area to throw everything away without much attempt at controlling pollution. You can see the Yukon River in the background. Every year the river floods and takes some of the garbage with it. It was just an awe inspiring amount of trash for a village of 800 odd people”

  1. In all the time i spent living at Mountain Village, I have never seen the Yukon River reach the dump area. I am disappointed that the description says, “every year the river the river floods and takes some of the garbage with it.” we haven’t had a flood that went as far as the treeline in decades
