Extra yardwaste pick ups not for us

I guess South Okanagan pays more taxes than Kelowna to have the luxury of not one but two days in the year of unlimited yard waste pickup.

Open letter to

Kelowna mayor and council:

On Thursday, Nov. 1, I placed curbside my garbage and green bins and, with relief, three extra bags of yard waste.

I hadn’t quite finished all of my fall yard work but there would be another unlimited yard waste pickup the week of Nov. 26.

When I returned home from work that day I found the three bags had not been picked up so I researched the Internet to find where I had read that there would be unlimited yard waste pickup the weeks of Oct. 29 and Nov. 26 and found that the article I had read was for the Regional District Okanagan-Similkameen—South Okanagan.

Huh!

I guess they pay more taxes than us here in Kelowna to have the luxury of not one but two days in the year of unlimited yard waste pickup.
