Support for Comox Valley rural garbage pickup

Dear editor,

We pay over $400 a year to have our garbage picked up in Union Bay.

Dear editor,

We pay over $400 a year to have our garbage picked up in Union Bay.

Then we spend an hour’s time and 30- to 40-km worth of gas in our mid-sized car or giant van going to the “nearest” recycling depot. Several areas in the house are cluttered with usually large, bulky pieces of recycling until it is lugged out.

Would we like to have garbage AND recycling picked up roadside at our house in Union Bay for about $150 a year paid to the regional district?

Hmmm, less than half of what we pay now, double service. Let us think about this for a minute. OF COURSE.

A tip of the hat to the writer of a really erudite rant about what happens to the recycling, but that is a cause for another day. We’ll be at the Union Bay Community Hall this Saturday and we’ll be voting “Yes.”

K. Clark & E. Lange,

Union Bay
