The May long weekend is famous for Canadians getting out to enjoy the spring beauty nature has to offer. Unfortunately for some people, it meant finding heaps of garbage dumped randomly south of Nelson.
Mariah Walchuk was shuttling her boyfriend up Give Out Creek Road to go mountain biking last weekend when they came across a pile of burnt garbage and trash strewn about including old tires and pieces of furniture and appliances.
“To whomever did this, perhaps they can help with clean up or us as a community can come together and clean it up,” said Walchuk.
The Nelson transfer station, located at 70 Lakeview Drive, is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. For the hours of the RDCK transfer stations visit www.rdck.ca/EN/main/services/waste-recycling/hours-of-operation.html.
