Dear friends with the city of St.John's, there is no doubt that you have a wonderful disposal facility in Robin hood Bay, very clean, organised, however you have to understand that it is not as convienient as you think it is. I have used the site four or 5 times on Saturdays, I stop along the way for a coffee, sandwitch and a newspaper for the wait. My day job I work between 40-50 hours, and I don't have my entire Saturday, loading, travel to robin hood bay, waiting at robin hood bay and then travel back. But I do it!!!!!!!!!!!!! There is 2 out of 100 people that are ignorant enough to dump illegally. The point though is Robin Hood bay is not as straight forward as you all think. Because of heavy items on one load, I was directed to drive down to the dump area, I was met with another 45 min wait, in 6 inch of mud, with sneakers on, so I added a truck/trailer/ mats/ sneakers cleaning to my afternoon. Started at Breakfast loading finished in time for supper.

I love the new Dump site at Robin Hood Bay,the first comment is right. The only problem with camera`s will be when Bobby gets caught on camera & his buddy Dave knows him,it`ll be 'swept under the rug'.

The more things change the more they stay the same. Having been an employee of the City of St.John's I observed as well as another employee a contractor dumping a pickup load of material in the Shea Heights area. The plate # and name of the on the truck were reported to the City. As far as I know nothing was ever done and debris continued to accumulate in that area.

The City should make the dump available for drop off after 4 PM. Weekdays before 4 PM, no one can use it as they are working. Saturdays before 4 PM, it is too busy and people don't want to use it.
