Thousands of pounds of debris left behind in hidden, abandoned Roseville homeless encampments

Hidden homeless camps, abandoned by those living outdoors, have cleanup crews with the Roseville Parks & Recreations department busy every Thursday collecting anywhere from five to 10,000 pounds of debris in a day. "To be forthright, this is a nasty job," said parks department employee Greg Smith as he pointed to one of the strategically hidden encampments about 200 yards from Roseville Golfland Sunsplash in the green spaces along Secret Ravine Creek adjacent to Sutter Roseville Hospital. "But it has to be done." Much of the debris includes used drug needles, drug paraphernalia and human waste.
