It was garbage day at my house for the blue recyclable box and the green waste can only. Those were the only two items at my curb. Therefore, I was dumbfounded when Emterra Environmental refused to empty the green waste can because the decal on it did not face the road. As it was the only can at the curb, as per stipulation for that day, how could it have been anything but green waste?
And since I live on a round cul-de-sac, which exact portion of the road was it supposed to face?
Exactly how much money did it cost Langley City taxpayers for one truck and one driver and one handler to refuse to pick up merely one skimpy grocery bag of kitchen waste and supply me with a handwritten excuse?
