Illegal dump sites on watershed land

North Preston victimized by unscrupulous contractors

What's wrong? Illegal dump sites on watershed land.

Who's responsible? David Hendsbee, councillor for the area, 483-0705.

Remarks: Hendsbee is clearly frustrated at the illegal dumping along Upper Governors Street, which leads through the Lake Major Watershed to North Preston. The junk---roofing materials, construction waste, broken appliances and the like is repeatedly trucked in and dumped by unscrupulous contractors and other ne'er-do-wells who don't want to pay landfill tipping fees. Nearby residents are vexed; annual community clean-ups can't stay on top of the problem, and "no dumping" signs do no good.
