Roll out of waste carts will largely depend on where you live
The city has released a map on its website indicating how it will implement the three year phase in of the new waste collection system. In many cases, residents on one side of a given street will be switched to a cart based system in 2012 while those on the other will continue to use three different colours of bags.
going to feel somewhat sorry for people on one side of a street who have to look across at a neighbour who hollister isn making the switch until 2013 or said Coun. Cam Guthrie, who will be among those rolling carts out to the curb before the end of this year.
Guthrie said he has already had one resident say he will refuse the carts and take his waste instead to the Waste Resource Innovation Centre on Dunlop Dr hollister ive.
said if he can get 10,000 people to do the same thing the city would have to pay attention, the councillor said.
City councillors voted in December to affirm an earlier decision to switch all three waste streams to carts; a move which will see the city spend $5.2 million on the wheeled receptacles and replace the current fleet of collection trucks with automated trucks.
An exhaustive public education campaign will soon get underway, with residents to begin receiving their wheeled carts in mid September.
using automated trucks and carts will begin first Monday in October, Dean Wyman, the city general manager of solid waste resources, wrote in an email.
Wyman said the map found on the city website is accurate, with staff finalizing precise streets and addresses to be included in the various phases.
Guthrie was one of two councillors to vote against making the switch at that December meeting along with wardmate Coun. Gloria Kovach and said as a resident he still not happy with it.
things are going to take up a lot of space and I still very frustrated that we had to go with this hollister system, Guthrie said, adding there were other options for council to explore hollister which might not have cost millions of dollars. were given brand new information that night and I don think (the rest of council) made an informed decision.
