Letters: Shame on dumpers

High disposal costs and irresponsibility lead to dumping at Muir Creek

On Sunday, June 7, Jessica Boquist and myself picked up 27 bags of illegally dumped drywall and house insulation at Muir Creek, west of Sooke.

Aside from the eco-criminality of the dumping, I think there could be  a related concern of the cost of proper disposal: $5 per bag. But then, it could be argued that this expense should be taken into account as part of home building/renovation, therefore zero excuse for illegal dumping, particularly near a waterway and beautiful walking trail.

Hopefully the perpetrators will read or hear about this letter and be ashamed enough of their behavior to never do this again.
