Garbage dumping on local trails

This is not what enjoying B.C.'s natural beauty is all about

This letter writer is concerned about the amount of garbage being dumped on local trails.

I’m disappointed to find garbage dumped on the power line trail/road maintenance near the old paintball field. A barbecue is visible from the highway heading east.

With the increase of camping fees there will be more people using the logging and service roads to camp. Respectable people bring and take their garbage out. Outright dumping of personal items and household garbage renovations is not what enjoying B.C.’s natural beauty is all about.

I think this “wilderness” garbage dumping isn’t unique to Hope. We have a few people in our community who “volunteer” to clean up garbage in Hope and area. Thank you “volunteers.”
