Get old campers off good campsites

Citizen does not understand why people don't pick up their garbage

I am a very concerned citizen in Campbell River and I was reading your July 18 paper.

I would like to ask you a question about one of the articles in that paper, “Citizens on Garbage Patrol.”

I would like to know why no one can get the owner of a piece of junk that they have left in the woods to remove it within one month, let alone three years?

I know of a few other campers that have been left in the woods just to rot away or even keep the site for as long as that person wishes.

All this does is stop anyone else from using that site.

I think there are a lot of good campers who would love to use those sites. I think that the campers should be removed by us and the bill sent to the owner asap, or added to their next year’s taxes.

If not then add the bill to their auto insurance. This might stop a few of the people.

There has to be a way to stop these people. If you know who owns the junk there should be no problem making them remove it.
