I have to agree with Danna Casto (“Trashed Surrey detailed on blog,” The Leader, Dec. 20).
They state of North Surrey is bad, and getting worse.
I have lived in Surrey since 2006, and seen a dramatic increase in trash littered along the side of the road.
Not just trash, but furniture of all kinds. It’s really quite sad.
We are told that Dianne Watts is trying to clean up Whalley, which is great, and I am seeing good things all the time, but shouldn’t part of the “clean up” include trash?
I really think that council should seriously consider bringing back spring cleanup to all of Surrey, not just North Delta.
I think that people would normally store all their junk in the basement, garage or shed over the year, then haul it out to the curb for cleanup. Well now, I think there is a bit of frustration.
They know it won’t be picked up so they are either too lazy or can’t afford to take a load to the dump, so what do they do?
They go dump it on the side of the road, knowing that eventually the city will come get it.
The city spent $830,000 to clean up illegal dumping. How much more could the spring clean collection be?
