Letter: Bring back free household item pickup day


Illegal dumping of furniture and large appliances is hard to control.

I lived in Parksville on Vancouver Island for 15 years and that community had a great program to combat illegal dumping.

Once a year, the city would have a free pickup of all those household items some people don’t have a way of getting to the landfill.

This seemed to stop a lot of illegal dumping and problems related to these eyesores within city limits.

It is probably relatively inexpensive versus picking it up throughout the year.
