Washington’s Department of Ecology claims they care about the environment, but every employee at this agency watched toxic waste pile up in their own front yard for years and they did nothing about it.
Washington’s Department of Ecology ignores Toxic Waste on their own property
By Glen Morgan
A common theme which unfortunately defines government is the inevitable hypocrisy frequently on display. If we bother to look at the difference between what these bureaucrats and agencies claim to care about and what they actually do, we will see it plain as pile of trash in the woods. A few days ago, I visited the Washington State Department of Ecology‘s property located in Lacey, Washington. I took photos of the massive garbage piles, drug needle piles, open pit latrines, small motor and bike chop shops, piles of burned garbage, toxic waste landfills, and other absurd activities taking place in their front yard. Much of these activities were within plain view of the offices of the Department of Ecology and every single employee, including Director Laura Watson, drove right past these activities every day, and they did nothing. Nothing at all.
Despite all their claims to care about the environment, Washington State’s Department of Ecology didn’t care enough about the environment to clean up their own front yard. When I took these photos and documented the ugly truth about the Department of Ecology‘s front yard, they finally started to go through the process of cleaning up the toxic waste after ignoring the mess for so many years.
As we’ve documented with past stories, this is the same agency which has repeatedly harassed small farmers and property owners for having as little as one horse in large pastures, located many hundreds of yards from any river or stream. Their reason? The “potential to pollute.” Not even any evidence of any real pollution. Just the “potential to pollute.” For this, the Department of Ecology happily destroys lives and is only satisfied when the horse is dead (see the Cross Family story from Whatcom County linked here).
In addition to the Washington State Department of Ecology ignoring the massive toxic waste pile growing in their front yard, the US Environmental Protection Agency rents offices in the same building and also did nothing. So does Washington State’s Conservation Commission, and they did nothing as well. In a few buildings right behind the DOE facility, the employees of the US Fish and Wildlife Service also ignored the environmental disaster which they drove by every day to work, as did the US Marine Fisheries employees. All these bureaucracies and agencies claim to care about the environment, but when true pollution is piling up outside their front windows, they choose to ignore it and do nothing to clean it up themselves.

OUR CONSTITUTION BEGINS WITH THE PHRASE “WE THE PEOPLE.” IT WAS THE FOUNDERS’ INTENT THAT GOVERNMENT BE CREATED BY THE PEOPLE, TO SERVE THE PEOPLE. IT WASN’T THEIR INTENTION FOR THE PEOPLE TO SERVE THE GOVERNMENT. IT WAS ALWAYS INTENDED THAT GOVERNMENT WHICH FAILED TO SERVE THE PEOPLE SHOULD BE “ALTERED OR ABOLISHED.” UNTIL WE RETURN TO THE FOUNDER’S INTENT, WE REMAIN WE THE GOVERNED…
