Letters: More garbage cans needed

Resident wants more places to put garbage along trails

Was walking down in the new trail from the school behind Arranwood Drive and up to the new Church Road and could not believe how much garbage was on the ground. I pretty much found out why, quite quickly, when I could not find any garbage can in any areas of the trail.

From the start of the trail to the end there isn’t any place to put your garbage. Even the dog owners were leaving their dog poop bags behind by the very own post where they got the bag in the first place.

I have been a resident of Sooke since 2009 and my taxes keep getting raised every year and would expect to have the proper facilities for our everyday walk.

It is unacceptable to have so much littering in such a beautiful place like Sooke. This needs attention right away. We have birds eating garbage from the ground as a result of our disregard to nature.
