Another dumping station?

Dixon Creek Road property being used for piles of garbage or construction trash

Someone is dumping mountains of garbage on Dixon Creek Road property.

To the editor;

When I drive down to Barriere via the Dixon Creek Road I always pass by this property with lots of garbage or construction trash, and it looks so ugly.

Somebody is using their property to dig out sand with a big excavator and fill it up with garbage – whole truck loads of garbage.

Some local people are wondering if Barriere got another dump station, or is it just a new idea to make money with garbage on this person’s property?

I took a picture because I don’t want to see the garbage getting buried there.

A picture in the Star/Journal could maybe help, it did in the past on a different location.

I would be really happy if this picture would help to prevent such things from happening in the future.

I have no problem giving you my name and address, but I would not like to see it in the newspaper, you never know if that person will get mad about this…

Thank you so much.
