Do the right thing and keep garbage out of Chilliwack River Valley

I am writing an addendum to the letter you published this week, regarding rubbish being dumped in the Chilliwack River Valley.

I am writing an addendum to the letter you published this week, regarding rubbish being dumped in the Chilliwack River Valley. The Fraser Valley Regional District has provided garbage cans along the highway for the use of visitors to the Valley and NOT for local residents to dispose of their household refuse. Bags of garbage, as well as other junk, are often left at the side of the cans, where wild animals, dogs and crows open them up and scatter the contents.

Such an eye sore, not to mention pollution!   Who do you think is going to clean up the mess? Where is your conscience?

Wake up and do the right thing. Take your garbage to the landfill and recycle depots. Leave the Valley garbage-free for us all to enjoy its beauty.
