Letter: Good spot for transfer station

Illegal dumping as begun following transfer site closure

Re: Editorial: A little of this, a little of that.

Regarding the closure of the Sooke Disposal yard  — I had read a suggestion that the district work with Sooke Disposal to perhaps get them set up in the industrial park land opposite Saseenos elementary school,  which I understand the district owns.

It would seem to me that the location is as good as we can hope for (nobody really wants the dump next door) and the land sits vacant now when it could be bringing in some revenue for the town (we could charge more or less what Butler was charging for his land).

I hope the district is actively working with SDL to get them set up, as I am quite concerned about the illegal dumping of garbage. I have been the victim of a number of instances of illegal dumping at the back of my property (which funny enough is right next door to the current SDL dump yard).

An update from the district on their efforts to address this community concern would be appreciated.
