Letters: Private property is not a dump

Rubbish dumped on rural property is not okay and probably illegal

On Friday, May 31, 2013 I noticed a full size white pickup truck at the Petrocan gas station. It was loaded to the top with freshly cut tree branches and other stuff. I was curious as where it was going.  Was it going to the dump? Of course not. It ended up on my property on Farmer Road Friday sometime.  This isn’t the first time that this person has dumped there waste, as they came back and did a second and third load also. This is not the dump, so why are you dumping here?  Are you so lazy that you can’t drive to the dump and dispose of it the proper and legal way?  You probably wasted more gas coming here to dump than you would going to the dump. We have contacted CRD and they will be watching for illegal dumpers like you.  Next time think about it and go to the dump, not my property. It doesn’t cost that much to dump.
