LEAVE IT THE WAY YOU FOUND IT
If you “pack it in, pack it out. Leave it the way you found it,” says J.P. Wood, waste management officer for the Municipality of Colchester, of anyone visiting the area’s waterfalls or other natural/wilderness sites. We’re noticing litter is still very much an issue. If you find a bank that leads to a waterway, you are going to find garbage. I don’t know why,” he says. “It’s definitely a head-scratcher.” And, if more people were conscientious about taking their garbage back with them when hiking, swimming, or partaking in whatever outdoor activities, people such as Jeremy Smith would not have to feel the need to pick up other people’s trash. Nonetheless – “It’s nice to see somebody like Jeremy taking it upon themselves.” Wood said anyone who sees signs of illegal dumping or any degree of waste being left somewhere is asked to call the municipal Helpline at 902 895-4777.
