Why on earth we would recommend bi-weekly garbage collection?
Who voted for this? Was there public consultation? The trucks are running weekly. Why would it matter that we can now put more composting out? The majority of people in the area I live in do not have composting to put out because we compost ourselves in our own yards. Who does this benefit? The city, because you are sending fewer trucks to the transfer station and thus not being charged as much. But us taxpayers are still paying the same and getting less service.
Will we be able to put out larger containers like other municipalities, like Williams Lake, Quesnel, North Vancouver? No. Why? Because we haven’t invested any money or time into looking at that.
The “go-green” people win.
It’s absolutely ridiculous that we are paying more taxes but our services are declining.
