Somebody’s trash is somebody else’s treasure

Please do not shut down the little re-use shed at the garbage dump. It will only hit the poorest of the poor and make more garbage for the landfill.

The opposite would be great. Make it even bigger so that we can bring nice and good furniture there for people who need them, for handymen who would fix them.

Don’t listen to the bureaucrats who have lots of money and do not know how older people on a fixed income have to survive.

We are a generation of waste and do not think about future generations who will need a clean and healthy environment, no more dirty footprints on our wonderful earth. Let’s reuse what we can. Let’s help, together, to keep the little shed clean by organizing it whenever we bring something there. Fifteen minutes to volunteer will save half a million dollars for workers. Ha, is money really worth nothing anymore? Sand in the wind?

I just moved down from Fort Nelson, too busy up there, but we had a great re-use shed and people are happy to find treasures there. So why not in Burns Lake?

Merry Christmas and please listen to the people.
