LETTER: Sofa dump disheartening to junk clean-up crew


I would like to extend a big thank you to all the great neighbours and West Panorama Ridge Ratepayers who came out to clean up everyone else’s garbage on Saturday, April 27.

We celebrated our 13th annual Earth Day with over 50 participants, including five of the Community Cares students from Colebrook Elementary.

Although we continue to see a small reduction in the huge pile at the end of the day, it was incredibly disheartening to see a black leather sofa dumped on Colebrook Road in the afternoon, just hours after our clean-up of the ridge.

It’s time for serious effort with cameras and patrols to catch these people. Take your junk to the dump.

Tammy Ritchie, Surrey
