Dumping Along Local Trail - You'll Need More than a Garbage Bag for this

After reading a story about Signal Hill being used as a dump, I thought it was a good time to share these pictures. There is a trail just off Stavanger Dr., behind stores Winners, Bowrings, and others, and there was a mess, or still is, at one area of the trail. It's uncertain who did the dumping, but as you can see from the pictures it includes shopping carts, a plastic bag of other strong plastics, and at least three sheets of styrofoam.

The pictures were taken a week ago.

It was not a complete surprise Inky. St. John's looks nice when the foliage is out, and that gets your attention, but the fact is it could be cleaner. People themselves, and businesses can be more responsible. The good news is that there will be curb-side recycling here I think later this year, so that's a help.
