Garbage dumped on private property.

Letter: To the owner of this mess

Home owner tired of people dumping their garbage on their property

Thank you very much for depositing your garbage on our property. We are not the Sooke dump, so please come and get it.

Thanks to you and your illegal dumping, we now have a bear that comes quite frequently into our yard and the neighbour’s yard and gets into the garbage. We don’t appreciate this, as it has now ruined  a metal shed.

We are sick and tired of these dumpers that think they can get away with this, but guess wrong, as we found your name in amongst the trash. People on Amanda Road, Eaglecrest Road and all the other roads that lead off of Otter Point Road are all fed up with this kind of behaviour from grown ups.

If you can afford the gas to drive all this way to dump your trash, then you can go to the dump and dump trash there.

As I said before we are not the Sooke dump.

When is Sooke Disposal going to find a place so that this will stop? We all think that it has been long enough for them to find a spot to get up and rolling again.
