Re: Dumping trash in isolated areas.
I saw the picture on the front page of Thursday’s Capital News and read Judie Steeves’ story in the newspaper.
There may be some people who dump their trash in remote areas but that is not the whole problem.
Being in the disposal business, I hear people on the phone all the time saying that they can get their trash removed for $20 to $50.
But this has to be somebody out there trying to make a quick dollar.
Everything we haul goes to the Glenmore landfill or recycling—where the rates are anywhere from $8 to $150.
I can’t see contractors dumping their waste in remote areas, they have probably paid someone to dispose of it in the right manner.
We live and work in this area and thrive on keeping B.C. a clean and beautiful province.
These pictures and comments are disturbing to me as it is nice to have trails that you can walk through and enjoy the beauty of the area, not garbage.
