Readers have green bin fixes
just plain silly and wasteful to be hiring yet more consultants to find out why people won use their green bins when you already know the answers and you know that the answers won change, wrote Ottawa resident Klaus Beltzner.
this information make you change your minds to allow people to use plastic bags to bag their waste going into the monsoon wedding dresses green bin? isn alone with his angst, judging by the number of e mails sent to the Sun following recent green bin columns.
Reader Rob Lamontagne is among that group.
don I use my green bin? I have written to council about it. Plastic compostable bin liners are the way to go. They are inexpensive and monsoon wedding dresses don leak.
city is scratching their collective heads, wondering why residents aren complying with the green bin program. They talk education. They need to listen! When a program that makes sense is implemented, I will comply, he wrote.
Others are just tired of being told what to do with their garbage and all that entails.
believe the reason the green bin program is so unpopular is that it exceeds the limit of peoples tolerance for intrusions into their personal lives.
is asking too much of citizens to sort every little thing! wrote Sun reader Jay Hunt.
Maggots, odour and raccoons were also mentioned by many, including resident Tom Lockett.
spending the last two hours washing the maggots out of my garage, I finally got to sit down and read my Sun only to find an article about how great the green bins are. I have tried to use my bin and let me tell you it is not easy, Lockett wrote, recounting how his Christmas turkey stayed frozen in the bin for months.
Lockett wrote biodegradable plastic bags would see a lot more people signing onto the program.
Resident monsoon wedding dresses David Hum says raccoons get into his green bins.
am surprised that the green bins were never properly tested. Perhaps they were same people who tested the Presto card, he wrote.
Rob Arnett just isn buying into the program.
suggest that people get with it and use the green bin. With all due respect, I disagree. inconvenience extra labour, smell, rodents, cost of paper storage bags, he wrote.
Even those who use the green bin have issues with it, like Ruth Hunter Zemanek.
cold week last winter, the paper green bin bag, froze to the side of the green bin. My husband had to use a tool to pry the bag loose from the side of the bin. In doing so, he broke the bag. When our neighbour encountered the same problem, he became so annoyed that he stopped using his green bin, Hunter Zemanek wrote.
Happily, at least one green bin resistant read the green bin columns with an open mind.
Susan, I don want to be quoted but I have been using mine to store hockey sticks and grass tools . now I will use it properly to do my bit for another mismanaged city program. As you say, it silly to ignore it, he wrote.
So how much is the city going to spend on this consultant, who is apparently being paid to go out into the community to find out why taxpayers aren using their green bin.
The c monsoon wedding dresses ity isn saying, just yet!
Here what city spokesman Barre Campbell had to say on that matter.
research would be a component within the overall communication plan for the green bin. As the plan has not yet been completed, final costs have not been determined.
