EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — The Bureau of Land Management has completed the eviction of about 90 campers in the Bertelsen Nature Park in west Eugene.

Field manager Chuck Fairchild says only four campers remained Tuesday after weeks of warnings. The four eventually left without being arrested.

The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/1eaZEuA) the BLM, state Department of Transportation and city of Eugene recently have forced about 150 illegal campers off public lands in and around the city.

In one camp the city hired a hazardous material contractor to remove buckets of human waste.
