Letters: Stop dumping in Shirley

Shirley and Jordan River are often the site of illegal dumping of garbage

I am writing this letter in regards to the ongoing and illegal dumping of garden refuse, roofing materials, house clutter, and garbage in the Shirley/ Jordan River areas. It is frustrating, to say the least, that this is happening with no clear end in sight. The good news is that there are concerned citizens who have no problem going through the garbage to locate an address or name of the offending party. It must be total ignorance and small IQs that lead people to illegally dump their trash. In most cases the trash can be composted, recycled, or sold for profit. To the people from Sooke who I observed dumping your landscaping waste on an access road at Blueberry flats, I did take down your licence plate and make and model of your truck. Please clean up your waste or I will send this info to CRD. Thank you.
