Letters: Dump solutions

Letter writer offers a solution to kitchen scrap collection

After being told I have to pay more to have exactly the same crap hauled away because the CRD has decided garbage is unfit for the garbage dump, I turned to the website for the CRD “Regional Kitchen Scraps Policy” to see if I could glean any insight into the latest round of stupidity that should itself have been put into the dump.

My takeaway was this “Eat those leftovers! Leftovers don’t have to be boring.” Evidently the 12-year-old townie the CRD has retained as a patronizing content writer is familiar with the 5 a.m. excitement of walking into a bear that has just shredded the plastic container provided for my neighbour’s smelly seafood castoffs.

However, he/she may be on to something. I don’t see why the extra step of taking a dump can’t be eliminated and the material run through an industrial garburator and pumped out to sea, where it would end up anyhow (at least in the CRD). It would be a more sanitary alternative to eating it first.
