Dump rules need to be recycled

Problems at Oak Bay municipal yard could be remedied

Re: Lack of manners annoys resident (Letters, Dec. 7)

The Oak Bay municipal dump layout, signage and traffic scheme needs to be redone. The amount of traffic at the dump has increased of late and the current setup is very confusing, as I have seen at least a few mishaps there. I’ve been there probably hundreds of times, having always lived in Oak Bay, and it’s always a different experience.

A larger compost dumping area would be a huge plus, as that’s where people seem to spend the most time. Stricter enforcement limiting dumping to Oak Bay users only – no commercial gardeners – and increasing the number of green pickup days to twice a year would also help.

I hope Oak Bay dump management, mayor and council take action on this.
