• Grand Opening: New Dumping Grounds

Just a quick note:

Thanks to a tip from Kenny Mayes, I found a new place to dump unwanted items. It's near the corner of Palomar and Wesley. Check out all the great stuff that's there... 
If you're looking for some slightly used goods... check out the area in the red circle for smokin' hot deals.

So many items to choose from.          [CLICK TO ENLARGE IMAGE]


Of course this is no joking matter, and I feel bad for the land owners... it sucks when human cockroaches ruin other peoples things... but that's sort of normal for a lot of people.

Still, I felt like joking around anyway... click to see "Boberta's Thrift Store" TV spot I just made.





I wonder how this place passed all the CEQA hurdles?

  1. Years ago I used to hike through another grass roots dumping ground. Once I encountered fresh household trash with a lot of papers, so I combed through it to see if I could identify the person responsible. I found numerous medical bills for someone named "baby boy." What a strange name, I thought, then realized I was looking at the bills for an infant not yet named. The story began to form: poorly or uninsured pregnant mother has a severe complication leading to the hospitalization of her as yet unnamed son. Tragedy ensues, and she has to cut and run, leaving her household junk in the nearest canyon. As I looked further, the same household debris was intertwined with yard trimmings: one to two-inch limbs from Eucalyptus trees and other hedge-like material. What tragedy-stricken parent clears and hauls brush before fleeing? I'm convinced that the one dumping was not the parent of "baby boy" but the landlord or landlord's employees charged with preparing the dwelling for the next renter.

    1. That's probably it... I found, and took a picture of, a bill to someone in Lake Elsinore. There is a field near my house, just southwest of the Baxter off ramp, that was used as a dumping ground before they put up a port-a-fence many years ago. It's very infuriating to see what people do in this manner.

  2. The sad part is because this is on private property it will remain for a very long time. In years past, ancient history for some, the County of Riverside, later the Santa Rosa Plateau, and the local community did a watershed cleanup twice a year during which groups of citizens would gather and scour the valley to clean up these areas removing the items to government provided dumpsters. Private citizens are less restricted as to where they can go vs. government officials. Have seen this done in over 5 years.

    1. We do need to have a remedy to this. It's like graffiti, and though it would be great to catch the perps, we have to be ready to clean it up in the meantime.

  3. I find it hard to see how some will fight to stop any development when there are empty fields that have to be surrounded with rent-a-fences to prevent dumping. sheila

    1. Hey, this is the modern world, and being a "community activist" no longer means "looking to better the community through hard work and sweat" it means "to get your name in the paper as you yell 'the sky is falling, the sky is falling' while filing as many lawsuits as you can". In other words... good point.

  4. Just received a reply from the City of Wildomar. This matter has been turned over to Code Enforcement, as I knew it would, because it is on private property. If a dumpster was available I would collect this and dump it on my own because now it will sit for weeks.

    1. Kenny, I'd be willing to help you clean it up. The city really needs to have a way for private citizens to help out. Be it a dumpster, or whatever other remedy. Let's hope it's only "weeks".

  5. Joseph - I knew you would help as would several other people. The problem is where to put it, its a lot more than would fit in several normal size trash cans. The city needs to make available, with a wink and a nod, a dumpster for these kinds of incidents.
