Garbage dumpers selfish, without conscience

Sassy Lion Thrift Store and Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store are the target of what appears to be an absence of community conscience.

Re: “Bloody bandage, rat feces left at Sassy Lion”, (Citizen, Aug. 10).

Sassy Lion Thrift Store and Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Store are the target of what appears to be an absence of community conscience.

The incident reported in the Citizen this week happens on a regular basis to both community supportive organizations.

Since neither store has the ability to secure their premises 24/7, people have taken a very selfish and small-minded initiative to dump garbage at their doorstep, out of sight of the public, instead of paying a small fee to dispose at Bings Creek or free at BC Recycle.

This lack of respect for the time dedicated by community volunteers to support our citizens is disgusting, as God only knows to what illness or disease they are being exposed.

It is time for the “midnight skulkers” to take ownership and responsibility to truly live as citizens in Cowichan Valley.
