LETTER: Bi-weekly garbage pick-up the ‘wrong approach’

If overflowing business dumpsters in Abbotsford weren’t council’s first clue, the mathematics should have been a slap upside the head.

If council’s idea was to clean up Mission, bi-weekly garbage collection is definitely the wrong approach.

If overflowing business dumpsters in Abbotsford weren’t council’s first clue, the mathematics should have been a slap upside the head.

Forty-two per cent recyclable in waste cans does not work out to a viable 50 per cent reduction in collection!

In fact, unless council’s plan is to subsidize furnishings for a Mission version of tent city with our excess waste, I’d like to understand their plan for the thousand bags of legitimate garbage per month that are not collected.
