To the Editor,
I am quite concerned that our city has not addressed composting pickup for citizens who would like to see this program started sooner rather than later. I think recycling is good but we also need the other service of compost bins being picked up on alternate garbage days.
The reason we can’t compost and we have stopped composting is that bears and other animals go through it, which has also brought rats around our home. Therefore, we stopped composting and it goes in our regular garbage. I use composting garbage bags which I think everyone should use rather than plastic.
Qualicum and Nanaimo has compost pickup; this should be in our budget for the city to move forward with this project like other communities.
