    taking out the trash

    the amount of garbage people dump boggles the mind. in this one area near the river you can fill up a 40 cube with all the garbage.



    looking towards weston road, would make one heck of a trail system...



    ducks and geese together!? i knew it!



    strange people, but hey



    the riding was pretty good also...

    That garbage picture is shocking. There are places in Dundas and Ancaster that complain about illegal dumping but it's usually yard waste (and the odd TV you find in a ravine). Nothing like that!

    Hey Singlesprocket,
    Where is that garbage? If its on TRCA land, or near (we can notify the municipality), I can let our staff know. They just hauled out a massive load of trash near Kirby and Hungtington.
    Thanks.

    Don't forget to check the trash for mail so the authorities can be notified who the dumpers are.

    Not sure if its true, but I've heard that you have to catch someone in the act of dumping to charge them with anything. Just finding their address/mail isn't enough because they can say that there garbage was stolen and dumped there. Which is too bad, because I would think the likelihood of that being the case is very small.

    that is along the north side of kirby rd by huntington rd (people dump on huntington road also near the bridge. you will also need a winch to pull up some truck tires and fridges that have been dumped in the little ravine there. when ever i go by that area i always carry my camera hoping i'll get lucky and catch the dumpers. if the trca needs help in the clean up just let me know or pm me.

    You can get game monitoring cameras for about $150. Movement triggers the pictures.

    Slap one up in a tree and get your evidence.

    For all the petty bickering we do amongst ourselves here, you forget just how truly awful some people can be.

    unfortunately traditionally the edge of the city was seen as a place to throw ones trash. it takes the community to say no, that this is unacceptable. it also takes the community to be present at trailheads to act as a deterrent for this type of behavior. actually one of the many benefits of building and developing trials…

    I agree with you 100%. A good trail system is like having a good Neighbourhood Watch. People are reluctant to commit a crime (like dumping) if they think they're going to be seen doing it.

    The odd thing is that the perception among non-trail users is that trails actually encourage littering and other undesirable behaviours rather than deter them.

    There's a fair amount of trash at the Pottery Road trailhead in the Don too - not quite that scale, but enough to notice.

    Now's the time to clean it up too, before new growth hides it.

    Speaking of illegal dumping, I was just out on my lunch ride and all along the MUP, there were all sorts of colorful magazine pages strewn about. I figured it was just some flyers that'd been picked up by the wind until I got a little closer...

    Page after page of graphic XXX pr0n! I guess somebody's secret stash isn't so secret any more. I'd love to have one of those motion-activated cameras out there to pick up the mayhem that will undoubtedly ensue.

    lol..

    Reminds me of when I was growing up back in Burnaby, BC. My elementary school had a small woodlot next to it which apparently was an occasional dumping ground for unwanted porn mag collections. Whenever this happened (about once every couple of years) some kid would eventually discover it at recess or lunch hour and by the end of the day there were hundreds of pages strewn about the entire school grounds.

    Lots of places will come and take your old fridges away.....For FREE!

    This kind of thing really gets to me....I just can't understand how people can live with themselves after doing that sort of stuff. People are f'd.

    maybe it was full of rotton food, people are weird. it can also be some contractor doing the dump. we have a problem with our 40 cubes at work being sniped by these contractors. i've caught a few, we have also caught illegal dumping of oil in dufferin forest. called the cops on that one, nailed the perps red handed (was a shady garage).
