Recycling rant not necessary

Dear editor,

Re: We need to rant about state of recycling in Comox Valley (Record, Nov. 9).

There’s no need to rant, but to recognize that most Town of Comox residents enjoy the benefits of a bi-weekly curbside ‘blue box’ recycling pickup service.

It is indeed unfortunate that rural residents outside the Town currently don’t have centrally located recycling bins; however, the regional district is working on an alternate solution that will address these concerns in a publicly controlled and/or managed facility that will serve the needs of all Comox Valley residents.

Waste reduction and diversion efforts will see the Town and regional district initiate an organics waste collection service early in 2013, as part of an ongoing process to achieve 70 per cent diversion from our landfill site.

Paul Ives,

Comox
