UPDATED: Dumped junk picked up

(Daniel J. Rowe, The Eastern Door)

A junk remover from Montreal spent Thursday cleaning up a pile of junk he left in Kahnawake the week prior after he was caught dumping illegally in the community and his truck was seized.

According to a Peacekeeper report from August 26, a Town Garage worker called the station at 10:44 a.m. to report a pile of garbage, including shingles and renovation material, which was noticed off the road leading to Adirondack Junction.

Officer Nikki Lahache responded and after sorting through the pile found a bill with a name and number on it from a residence in Chateauguay.

Lahache called the resident, who said on August 24 he tried several businesses listed on Kijiji to remove the material, and found one from Montreal to pick up the garbage. The truck took two trips to dispose of the junk.

The Chateauguay man kept the plate number and description and informed the PKs that he still owed the worker money for the job.

When the worker returned to the residence, PKs, working with Chateauguay Police, seized the Chevy Silverado 2500 with trailer, and informed the man if he wants it back, he will have to pick up the garbage left behind in the community.

When he picked up his truck Thursday, he was escorted to the pile of garbage and called a friend to help him clean up the mess, as his trailer and truck bed could not fit it all in one trip.

Dear Readers:

As an essential service that is still open during the COVID-19 pandemic, The Eastern Door is fighting hard to keep news like this flowing, in our print product, though an online subscription at and here, for free, on our website and Facebook.

But when a large portion of our regular revenue has disappeared due to so many other businesses being closed, our circulation being affected by the same issue, and all of our specials canceled until the end of the year, we are looking for alternative ways to keep operations going, staff paid, and the paper out every Friday for you to enjoy.

We exercise real freedom of the press every single day. Without our reporters fighting for the truth our community would be missing a whole lot of facts, separated from gossip and rumors.
