OTTAWA, Ont. — The Canadian Trucking Alliance (CTA) and its provincial member associations are asking carriers and drivers to help the industry clean up its act when it comes to dumping bodily fluid along roadsides.
The CTA Board of Directors has decided to address the issue in response to mounting complaints from the public. The CTA referred to the dumping of bodily fluids on the sides of roads or in parking lots “inappropriate, unhygienic and harmful to the industry’s image.”
While it’s a potentially embarrassing subject to address, the CTA is calling for the following measures: carriers are asked to advise their drivers to always properly dispose of any litter or waste in the appropriate receptacles and facilities; drivers as asked to report illegal disposal and littering to local authorities; and local authorities are asked to enforce litter laws, regulations and by-laws.
