Removed bins spark controversy

So I guess there will be three large garbage bins showing up at a garage sale in Rimbey soon.

Dear Editor:

So I guess there will be three large garbage bins showing up at a garage sale in Rimbey soon.

Remember the last guy who tried to remove them from the lobby of the post office? It did not take long for him to come to his senses.

I am all for recycling; for the past 33 years I have taken my papers and flyers to the Project 84 centre.

Project 84 is now closed.

The guys who are supposed to pick up recyclables every two weeks did not take my papers a few weeks ago because they were not in a blue see-through bag, just a clear one.

Now I am supposed to drive out of town to take an unwanted septic tank cleaning advertisement to the new recycling depot? Ha!

I refuse to be held hostage by business hours there.

If Rimbey wants to be a big town, then it should learn from other big towns that have those large container bins placed in a convenient location in town, in some cases even with designations for the specific recyclables.
