The Cariboo Regional District’s West Chilcotin Landfill share shed in Anahim Lake was burnt down Sunday, Aug. 5.
The cause of the fire is not yet known. However, arson is suspected and surveillance camera data is currently being reviewed.
Anyone with information on the fire is asked to contact the CRD’s solid waste management department at 250-392-3351 or toll free at 1-800-665-1636. Tips and information reported to the CRD will remain anonymous.
The CRD says the abuse and vandalism of share sheds is increasing the maintenance and operating costs to taxpayers throughout the region.
The West Chilcotin Share Shed could be replaced, but the CRD needs feedback from community members that a new shed is desired.
