To the editor,
I can’t understand what the City of Nanaimo and the Regional District of Nanaimo don’t get when the very busy, valuable NRE is about to close as a result of inadequate help from those two governments.
If it does close, you can expect a rash of illegal dumping along Doumont, Biggs and Nanaimo Lakes roads and a huge increase in volume going to the Cedar landfill, a lot of which would be recyclable material with some value. What are us homeowners to do with yard waste, for instance? I’m not about to start a big compost project in my yard or begin driving it to Cedar.
