Larry Wight and West Perth Operations Manager Mike Kraemer retrieve garbage on Jan. 12 that was dumped on Line 36 between Roads 155 and 160.
The task fell to West Perth Operations Manager Mike Kraemer and labourer Ian McCoy, who visited two sites to pick up garbage: Line 36 between Roads 155 and 160 and Road 155 between Lines 36 and 39.
Road 155, according to Kraemer, is one of the worst areas."You get everything thrown in this location," he said, climbing from the truck to investigate the most recent garbage disposed at the side of the road.Some of the most common garbage disposed of illegally, according to Kraemer and McCoy, is regular household garbage, tires, appliances and even dead farm animals such as rabbits, pigs and chickens.
Kraemer said illegal garbage dumping has always been a problem in the municipality, both in town and in the rural areas, but he too thinks that the problem is getting worse."It's definitely becoming a bigger problem," he said."I think economics has a large part in it.People don't want to pay $2 to get rid of it."To me, $2 for a bag of garbage is not that overly expensive for most people."Kraemer said the reason each garbage bag disposal tag costs $2 is due to federal regulations on municipal landfills. "We're being regulated to death," he said.He said landfills are now too expensive for small municipalities to operate and should be controlled at the county level.Even so, Kraemer said throwing garbage out at the side of the road is not the answer.He said the hour spent collecting the garbage on Jan. 12 likely cost the taxpayers of West Perth more than $50 due to the cost of the municipality's employees and the truck.In the past year, Kraemer said he has issued warnings to five or six people for illegally dumping garbage.The most common excuse Kraemer hears when he contacts people after linking them to illegally discarded garbage is that someone else must have stolen their garbage."In all likelihood, someone is not going to steal someone else's garbage and throw it out in the country," Kraemer said.
Kraemer said the municipality is considering raising the fines to help further discourage people from dumping garbage.
