Why must we pay so much, if garbage picked up every two weeks?
I was flabbergasted when I received our city’s bill for water, sewage and garbage. I thought that we would have relief now that municipal garbage collection has been cut in half since January. Now it’s only every two weeks. Although the allowed volume of recycling and waste capacities (roughly two big bags fill the bin) are the same as before January, we now wait two weeks before putting our bins on the streets. Only the green bin is collected every week.
I’d like to understand why New Westminster has decided to reduce services. Don’t get me wrong, we all should reduce our garbage for the sake of environment but why should we pay more for that?
