Hey! This is your wallet. Let’s talk about your garbage
The following letter-size notice was found duct-taped to the inside wall of an alleyway cedar dumpster gazebo in the Fairview neighbourhood:
IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL OWNERS:
Please be mindful of what you throw in the thrash (sic).
We understand that after a hard day of work it is difficult to decipher between cardboard and regular garbage.
But if we keep putting cardboard in the regular trash bin our strata will be fined. No one likes being fined.
Also, please do not throw plastic bags OR K-cups into the compost bin. Most plastic bags are not composed of organic material, even the compostable bags are not allowed, and if this is seen by the pick up crew they will not take our waste. This equates to unhappy neighbours, large amount of fruit flies and you guessed it…a potential fine.
So, let’s keep our operating fund healthy by putting our waste in the appropriate bins.
If you have any questions on this topic and how to separate your waste, please feel free to ask any of the strata members and they will gladly help you.
