My point is, pick up what you can, and feel free to take the initiative and carry out a couple of trash bags when you can. Sure no one will notice, you won't get any atta boys, but if you are sensitive to a beautiful place (a disc golf course in my eyes) being tarnished by the site of trash, then do your part for the game.
What is a "private State Park"? Not busting balls, I'm serious.

When I lived in Oklahoma City I worked out a deal between the company I worked for and the Parks Dept. Parks gave us trash bags and we got a crew together to clean up a park.

I took 10-15 people out to Dolese Park on two occasions - we spent the morning picking up trash (usually got 15-20 bags full) and the afternoon flinging plastic.

Each time we did this we ended up finding 4-5 discs, too

I carry a freezer storage bag in my DG bag. After enjoying a beverage out of a can, I crush it (by stepping on it) and place it in the freezer bag. It doesn't take up much space, even if three or four cans somehow find their way in there.

I believe he means you have to pay to enter the park, as opposed to a free state park.




We have 5-6 trash cans our Parks Dept. empties and were still having a minor problem with litter. So someone brought in a few large kitty litter pails and they seem to attract a fair amount of trash. They have to be emptied every couple months but I much prefer that over picking up litter.

Stan, I have a solution for you!

You need a Fairway Shark!


I've been meaning to post this sometime. I developed the shark (and my second 2.0 version with an accordian divider Innova bag off the back) for a pack in - pack out course. It is a wilderness course where it was decided that trash bags and cans would encourage bears and racoons too much - so no collection points.

A shark round or two every two to three months and the place gets back to looking great. If I had a "pack" of sharks committed to playing pick up rounds, it'd be even easier.

And hey - I took second in a club monthly, all while collecting half a can of trash during the event - just to prove it can be done!

Bonus - if you base it off a green g-can... you could make a garbage gator.

Fairway shark, nice!

Question, since it sits horizontally, how do you keep the garbage "juice" from dripping out of the side? Even emptying every can I pick up, after 18 holes, there's enough dribble accumulation to be significant. Does the shark keep it fairly contained?

Without reading more than the first page...

A big problem with large trash cans and trash bags is that when the Park Department does walk the course, it seems like the use of alcohol is way higher than it is. They dont have perspective of the last time the cans were emptied. Large recepticals seem good for the "We's" of the world that do the work. I have large cans at Bailey road park. I got around to cleaning them a few weeks a go, the last time I did it was in Worlds. So, 3 months of trash builds up and the park guy walks through and can think that it is a constant party.

So, I think less can be more at least how trash is perceived, however, it feels better to have the largest sturdiest trash bags/cans on the most holes to save labor later.
