Urine filled jugs aren't the only garbage at the truck pull out, which parallels Spencer Creek, a salmon producer. There's mattresses and bags of garbage, too.
"You can get it in your blood stream through a cut on your hand."

work out the problem with them. In the meantime, we need to do the right thing in the district. We'll get bear proof garbage cans down there. We can do something right away."
Allister Cathcart, an Abbotsford trucker who has used the pull out west of 240th Street confirms this. Cathcart has hauled big rigs across Canada for 12 years.

"All truckers pee in bottles when they're on the road," says Cathcart. "Some cut holes in the floors of rigs and drop bowel movements out. A mechanic told me he refused to work on a rig after he saw toilet paper hanging under it. It takes 15 minutes to stop a rig and 15 minutes to get it up and going again. That's half an hour of your time. Good truckers will do the right thing, though. They'll get rid of urine and excrement in washrooms. I empty urine jugs at home. That's what I've been told to do. But some guys just don't care. They say everybody else does it. But they don't. The guys I talk to don't like this. Bad truckers give us all a dirty reputation. Why not dispose of it properly?"
"Spencer Creek is ours," said Daykin. "Our guys have gone through garbage bags before. Sometimes you can track down the name and address of its owner. That's something we can do."

The ministry of transport is aware of the urine jugs being left in the Lougheed ditch site. It's thinking of closing the rest stop down.
The City of Surrey notes motorists account for 30 50 per cent of all litter there and warns truckers of a $2,000 fine without specifically mentioning urine or excrement. Signs showing jugs with lines through them would work.
"We're too easy in Canada," says Cathcart. and you're be in big trouble. State Troopers will make you clean up the whole ditch."

"Look at all the crap in here," the Pitt Meadows resident lamented. "TVs, tires, stereos, milk jugs. That windshield wiper bottle's three fourths full. Why would anybody throw it away?"
Scott Magri peered into a ditch beside the truck rest stop on the Lougheed Highway in Maple Ridge last week and shook his head.
Cathcart says Hepatitis C a liver disease can be spread through urine (medical websites confirm this).
Mayor Ernie Daykin thinks fines are a good idea.
