LETTERS: Dumpers show little respect for neighbours

Once again, the dumpers are at it.

A week ago, I was walking up Farmer Drive to Tregear Road when I noticed a pile of drywall was dumped on private property. This property is being tested for certain things for the water and soil.

There are large two-metre holes dug for tests. I am surprised that whoever took the time to dump drywall there, instead of taking it to the dump, did not back into a hole.

Because of their laziness and bad attitude, it is now going to cost somebody $100 or more to dump this at the dump.

Farmer Drive and Tregear Road are not the dump. The dump is on Marilyn Road, if you forgot where it is located.

People that live on this road are sick and tired of having to clean up after the dumpers.

Now hunting season is upon us, and we definitely do not need any dead carcasses left in the bush or on Tregear Road for our dogs to get into and get sick.

Please have some respect and dignity to take your garbage and stuff to the dump where it belongs, instead of people’s private property. There are no dumping signs and private property signs posted on Tregear Road.

Maybe some of the residents located on Farmer Drive and Tregear Road don’t care about the dumpers, but I care and so do two other residents, as we are always on the lookout for these dumpers. We do report dumpers and they will receive a hefty fine.
