Garbage collection problem resolved for 6700 The Avenue

Thanks to our Public Works Department, a problem with garbage collection at 6700 The Avenue has been resolved.

Buildings constructed in recent years only receive garbage collection once a week. The idea is for composting to take place  as well once a week. But since that is still not a reality I was able to arrange with Public Works to add a second day each week the pickup schedule in the interim.

6700 The Avenue has 90 units. Once a week pickup is not sufficient at the present time for a building this size. For starters they do not have enough bins for this to be done properly, emitting a foul smell outdoors and in the garage where the garbage had to be returned.

Thanks to Director Beatrice Newman and Environmental Technician Carly Steban for their assistance on this dossier as well as Emile Badea from 6700 The Avenue, which will have a  new commercial tenant by the spring on the ground floor.

The city is arranging this exceptionally until an official letter is sent to all new buldings with the three-way-shoots, detailing the next steps for compost implementation.
