Isn’t it fun delivering our own garbage?
What was picked up at the curb prior to the election now has to be dropped at four different places. The Mission Abbotsford recycling station had a transfer station and yard waste drop at the same place. Not anymore.
If you have plastic bags (who doesn’t?) you have to save them up and then take them to various drop-off – if they will accept them.
If you have construction waste, you have to take it down to Vye Road, on the other side of town. Of course, you are weighed and charged.
Here’s the killer: If you have a lot of yard waste, from pruning or whatever, you have to take it to the special compost site on Gladwin to be ground up for gardening products. We also get to pay for the privilege, minimum $10.
Let’s require city hall to provide the services we are paying for. If they won’t, then we’ll have to make some changes on election day.
