Trash constant problem along Drinkwater, North

I picked 50 yards along North from Drinkwater and overfilled a large yellow vinyl recycling bag!

Trash constant problem along Drinkwater, North

Dear North Cowichan mayor and councillors:

First, please know our busy municipal public works folks are efficient and great to deal with in getting problem areas of disgusting road garbage removed.

However, Drinkwater Road north, and North Road approaching Duncan Meadows Golf Course, sadly need constant attention.

I picked 50 yards along North from Drinkwater and overfilled a large yellow vinyl recycling bag!

Evidently some ignorant folks wrongly believe our fine municipality is their garbage can, dog-waste depot — and ashtray.

Please make these stretches a priority, though I do realize there unfortunately may be other trashed areas in North Cowichan that are just as bad as Drinkwater and North.

On another positive note, I sure applaud North Cowichan council for installing those effective speed-humps along Drinkwater north!

Peter W. Rusland

North Cowichan
