The backlash to recent changes on regional recycling has moved up a notch.
Rural residents can no longer throw blue bags filled with recyclables into large open steel bins.
Materials must now be put into small slots on the bins that are pad-locked, and that’s a major inconvenience.
Former Kaslo Area Director Andy Shadrack and over 200 petitioners are demanding the RDCK engage in public consultation for a better solution.
The RDCK says the changes save all taxpayers money and are necessary to be part of the new provincial recycling program in future, which would save more dollars.
