‘Junk’ on beach road needs to be removed

Oahu has an illegal junkyard and now, Maui does, too.

A television station reported Monday that an illegal junkyard in Pearl City finally got the attention of the city when neighbors complained about the burned-out cars, sofas and mountains of trash there.

I have written Mayor Victorino twice in the past two months, notifying him about a similar despicable eyesore of burned-out vehicles and piles of rubbish at the northern end of Kahului Beach Road, where it meets up with Waiehu Beach Road and Lower Main.

Over the weekend, there was a flatbed trailer moving precariously along the shoreline where there is no road. Were they adding to a campsite or depositing more rubbish?

People are living in cars there, sheltering beneath tarps. It’s an unholy, unsanitary, unhealthy, unsightly and illegal mess.

Come on, Mayor Victorino. Do something!
