Will Victoria give a hoot about Owl Road dump?
Kamloops council is asking the provincial government to look into community concerns surrounding the Owl Road landfill.
Council agreed to send a letter about the privately operated dump after resident Christina Mader brought to city hall a bag of garbage she had collected near the landfill during a weekend hike.
“I have seven more of these in the trunk of my car,” she said, adding she thinks the trash is blowing off the dump.
Coun. Nancy Bepple said she has heard complaints about the landfill in the past and thinks it’s time for the province to take a closer look.
“It’s great that people pick up garbage and make the whole community better but, at the end of the day, we do have certain regulations that everybody has to meet,” she said.
