Homeless in Vancouver: Mr. Manager tear down this wall. Thank you!

Early last summer one particular apartment building in Fairview—a three-storey job from the 1960s—threw up a surprisingly ugly home-made enclosure around its Dumpster and recycling bins, which I called Fortress Dumpster.

It was clearly a reaction to illegal dumping—an over reaction I’d say, insofar as the manager also hid the recycling blue bins.

Well, I see the snotty-green barrier to binning has disappeared—as suddenly as it appeared in the first place.

Maybe neighbours’ complaints led to the eyesore being dismantled, or perhaps the building manager is working on “Fortress Mark II”. 

The scene as it appears today, without the enclosure.
