Illegal dumping on Midday Valley Rd getting worse.
 
City of Merritt Director of Corporate Services Sean Smith says it's getting out of hand, particularly at the property where Wilkhu Metals used to operate.
 
"A few times a week there is a few things that are dumped and we are working closely with the owner to clarify to people that any sort of dumping is just not welcomed at that site. And, we'll be looking to take action against anybody found doing so."
 
Smith says there are private surveillance cameras in the area, and the city is working with the RCMP to identify potential suspects.
 
He also doesn't rule out the city eventually placing cameras in the area, if a privacy policy currently awaiting approval gets passed.
