LETTERS: Time to clean up the garbage on Marine Way


I am writing about the amount of refuse along the north side of Marine Way, east of Byrne Road. Market Crossing is a wonderful development meeting the diverse needs of Burnaby citizens. On the south side of Marine Way, the landscaping is lovely, and very little litter can be found.

On the north side of Marine Way, bordering on the film studio, it is a horrendous mess of litter, discarded clothing, fast food wrappers and coffee cups, even needles, etc. It is a disgrace. The film studio is a lucrative tenant of this land. Perhaps it could pitch in for some upgrades and clean up along this well-used city sidewalk. Or perhaps the city could get a crew out there to clean up once in a while and to install some trash cans on this popular bus route.

As it is now, this stretch of sidewalk is a black eye on our otherwise green city. Am I the only one who has noticed this?

A. Council, Burnaby
