Re: ‘Regional District of Nanaimo plans transition to automated curbside collection’ (www.pqbnews.com, Sept. 24)
I have been very busy lately with issues of summer, out of town camping/federal politics/personal items and the like.
Today, after collecting the mail, I received some very well-crafted bovine excrement about a proposed, no, shall I say ‘soon to be implemented’ automatic(?) recycling program, at a paltry sum of $3.2m of your tax dollars.
Those at the top have now created and upped our existing working recycling process to the next absurd level.
I will not mention that the existing smaller green bins might be too heavy for those young lads who presently take out the garbage. (As they might need a TV screen/air conditioning and natch tunes in the truck) but I digress. Are these folks just trying to justify their positions or staying ahead of the Joneses?
In a town of elders we do not need an automated and large convoluted system with a multitude of ‘special boxes’ to pick up one bag of compost every two weeks. Folks give your head a shake.
I have yet under the current process in two weeks been able to put in the green bin more than two small bags of compost. Blue bin maybe some of that, but it’s mainly wine and beer bottles.
Just to numb the pain of the current crap.
