OPSRRA takes the lead on efforts to curb illegal dumping — 2 Comments

  1. “I hope this in enforceable.”

    It’s not, and it never will be.

    The only way to keep illegal dumping to a minimum is to keep disposal fees as low as possible. It cost me $30 to get rid of a couch here in Sooke, and I had to haul it down to Idlemore. Rd. That couch will have to travel 40 km to the dump in Central Saanich. A lot of people don’t have $30, or don’t want to pay it, and they will find other ways of disposing of it.

    And the odds of catching and prosecuting them is close to zero.

    So every time the CRD raises disposal fees, the problem gets worse.
