We are also strongly against the proposed CVRD takeover for garbage/organics collection in Areas A, B and C.
In the 23 years we have lived in Shawnigan Lake, we have never had a problem with our private (Pan Disposal) collectors. We find them to be professional, punctual, personable, economical and hard working.
Yes, we encourage residents in these areas to recycle organics, which should leave little household garbage to collect. The CVRD blue bin program is great and if everyone did their due diligence, we would NOT have to see tossed out containers, etc. in the ditches and roadsides.
We will fight hard to be exempted from the new proposed CVRD program and will be quite happy to continue with our private collectors.
