Letter: I'm fed up with biohazards dumped on my New West street


I am a resident in the Sapperton area (Kelly Street) and about 15 bags of garbage were (recently) dumped in the lane behind my house.

This isn’t uncommon, but this particular time there were articles that appeared to be biohazards. Rubber gloves and wipes covered in ink and human blood.

I’m fed up with people treating my neighbourhood like a urinal. There is a mixed-martial arts (school) right next door. Young people are on and out all day and for people to see this or become sick because of this is an embarrassment for New West.

The residents of Sapperton have had enough of this sh** - as I’m sure the city and police department is as well.
