Green Bin Pick-up in Bible Hill
- Published: July 22, 2014, 2:40 pm
The following is a response from the Waste Reduction Manager at the County of Colchester to an inquiry from a resident inquiring about weekly green bin pick up.
"Thank you for taking the time to send us your email. The Municipality of Colchester has four years left in the contract for Municipal Curbside Solid Waste Collection. It expires 2018. Any time a contract is open for renegotiation the costs tend to dramatically increase and presently Council has not directed staff to investigate this option.
The County has had a curbside collection program since 1996 in the urban core and the program has been very successful. Unfortunately, the nuisance of insects and odours is most problematic this time of year. There are a number of methods you can use to manage them, wrapping food waste in paper (newspaper flyers, paper bags from grocery or liquor stores) there are also paper bags available for purchase. "Bag To Earth" is an example that is available at most grocery, hardware and retail stores. Also, using leaves and grass in layers to cover food waste helps mitigate odors as well. The sure thing that works is keeping meat, turkey & Chicken bones, lobster shells, fish etc really odourous materials in the freezer in a paper bag until collection day.
The Town of Truro has negotiated the weekly collection for green carts in their recent curbside collection contract. I would be confident in saying that staff will be asking for a pricing option in the next collection contract tender for weekly summer collection of green carts, to evaluate if it is fiscally responsible."
