CAN I LIMIT ACCESS TO MY LAND?
Yes. You can easily do this.
Dumping of waste, damage to property, and theft are some of the most common issues that landowners encounter along the river. To prevent illegal dumping or four wheeling/ATV access to your property and adjacent riverbed areas, it is recommended to post “No Trespassing” signs and, where possible, lock gates.
For more information on limiting access to your land, contact your county sheriff’s office.

To address waste management issues, landfill drop-off events are held by municipalities in Graham and Greenlee Counties during the fall and spring each year. During the spring 2017 event, over 48,000 lbs. of trash were collected and recycled, including 130 large appliances! Schedules and announcements for clean-up and drop-off events can be found in the local paper, on the radio, and on county and municipalities' websites.
