Residents of Pine Valley Fed Up With Garbage Mess

By Jeff SnoonianiBerkshires Correspondent

Residents of Pine Valley Mobile Home Park clean up trash on Monday afternoon.
CHESHIRE, Mass. — Residents of Pine Valley Mobile Home Park have dealt with rapidly deteriorating roads, a malfunctioning septic system, and a temporary loss of water service because of allegedly unpaid electric bills by its owners over the last several  years. 
Now they're dealing with a garbage strewn entryway because of unprotected roll-offs that have been invaded regularly by wildlife.
The property off of Wells Road has two 8-cubic-yard capacity trash containers at the entrance to the park in which the residents throw their refuse. Typical household waste from frozen vegetable packaging to dog food containers to diapers. A great deal of which is now scattered over a large swath of real estate that spans either side of Dublin Road. 
Residents say the problem has persisted every spring for years and the management and its on-site employee have failed to ameliorate the problem. The problem begins with the local bear population emerging from hibernation hungry and looking to feed in the quickest and most convenient way possible. They get into the containers easily as there is no protective fence or operable bear-proofing in use. The bears drag bags of trash to a nearby copse of trees where they are ripped open and sorted through. Once the bears get what they need and the coast is clear, smaller critters (fox, raccoons, squirrels, etc.) move in and further cannibalize the scraps which results in a wider spreading of refuse to nearby properties.
