Bowser dumpsters

The recent arming of the guards on illegal dumping could be settled down if the RDN would go back to offering two free dumping days a year

The recent arming of the guards and mustering of the eyes of the citizens to report illegal dumping could all be settled down if the RDN would simply go back to offering two free days a year when anyone can dump anything at the dump.

Free is the key word here. Better yet, the RDN would collect at everyone’s driveway.

They spend all kinds of money every year studying things. They need to do things, rather than just study them.

One thing they could do is select a place on Crown land and install a couple of 40-foot, open-top, used containers and let people in Bowser, which is many miles from the dump, put the stuff in the containers for free. Problem solved. No need for the police to police the woods looking for illegal dumpers. Seems to me the RDN makes a lot of money off of selling all those recycled items they collect from us for free. They could redirect some funds to establish and maintain a Bowser Dumpster Dump.
