Rural communities west of Sooke are hoping new signage will help curb illegal dumping in wooded areas.
Six anti-littering signs were installed at the entry points of the Otter Point, Shirley and Jordan River communities last week. The signs provide the phone number for people to call if they witness illegal dumping and littering.
The signs were paid for with a grant from the Otter Point, Shirley and Jordan River Resident and Ratepayers Association. Capital Regional District crews installed the signs.
