Fill out garbage, recycling survey

Fill out garbage, recycling survey

Many Qualicum Beach citizens have signed up with the town to receive communications on various issues – people want to be kept informed and given an opportunity to voice their opinions.

Apparently a couple of months ago the town stepped aside for the RDN to take over garbage and recycling services. The RDN then organized a survey with regard to garbage collection, recycling and the potential service of collecting garden waste.

I think the town should have sent out information on the survey for residents to participate, but they didn’t. Instead word of mouth and a friend brought it to my attention.

When I asked the town why they didn’t send out information, I received the standard “It’s not our department”, as they had passed the responsibility to RDN. Regardless of the fact that it affects QB residents.

A more logical response by the town would have been to circulate the link to garden groups, residents associations, etc.. as well as individuals who have requested to be kept informed.

Anyone with an opinion on garbage, recycling and determining need for picking up garden waste has until Sept 30 to complete the survey and can find it at:
