Is anyone else in the Comox Valley, or who pays taxes for garbage pickup, as frustrated as I am?
My observation is this. Garbage — recycling, leaves, and trash — have no consistent times for pickup.
For example, I put the garbage out at 8 a.m. and it’s not picked up until 1 p.m. and, then I don’t put it out until 9 a.m., only to realize it was picked up at 8:30 a.m.
Recycling is even worse; sometimes it’s not picked up until that evening. I have called the City and the only referred me to Emterra, who had a multitude of excuses as to why they can’t maintain a more consistent timeframe.
The problem is, much of the garbage and recycling gets blown around the neighborhood; or even worse, attracts wildlife.
