Things That Go Dump in the Night
When recyclers won't take gyproc
Garbage dumped along Cartmell on Native band land caught fire late last August.
spring, Chilliwack environment groups fill up two or three dump
trucks of garbage from areas along the river where people are known
to party and jettison their trash. If these local groups didn't
offer to go out and clean it, think of what it would look like after
a few years.
Among the mountainous heap of junk on Native band land, adjacent to the corn were a car starter, skids, plastics. ... mortar, drywall, plaster, cellulose, fibreglass fibres, lumber of all kinds of things which are toxic if burned.
The pile was growing in leaps and
bounds. Someone threw a truckload of clothes next to the pile that
was burning. Next to that, a contractor dumped a load of gyproc.
Someone tossed a truckload of gyproc wallboard out alongside a cornfield August 25.
