One more opinion on the City of Surrey's garbage can debacle. We received the information a few months ago about the change to new garbage cans. I went to the Ocean Park Library to check on the size of containers and decided I needed the smaller bins. So I dutifully sent my request to city hall straight away. About three weeks ago my neighbours received their "monster cans."
Upon my question to the delivery personnel I was told that the smaller bins were being distributed separately. Why? They couldn't tell. Last week I phoned city hall twice to inquire about the bins I requested. The persons I spoke to were not able to tell me when I could expect the new garbage cans.
As I write this letter tonight, Sunday, Sept. 30, I still don't have the bins delivered. What is going on at city hall? Surely they have all the pertinent information as to how many people to a household. I am the only occupant at my address, my next door neighbour also is a single occupant, but got the "monster cans." I just wonder how much longer it will take to sort things out. Typical bureaucracy at work without any input from taxpaying citizens.
