Hey Delbrook zone 2 – reasons not to take away your green waste (or your garbage)

People in Zone one of the DNV have had their new garbage and green waste carts for a while now. This of us in zone two get them this week. And we will soon be the recipients of the little green tags telling us why they are not taking away our garbage or green waste.

The following pic is from a bag or green waste I ran into in zone one today.

The District of North Vancouver is proceeding with its plan to replace current garbage hardware and rules with new carts and rules for garbage and yard/food waste. So far only one district in the DNV has received these new carts (Capilano).

Garbage carts will be smaller, but as well homeowners will no longer be permitted to put out multiple bags of yard waste for spring and autumn yard cleanup. Only one cart per week will be permitted while citizens are advised to store the rest in their garage.

The issue has become a topic of conversation on the North Vancouver Politics blog site here:

And the Federation of North Vancouver Community Associations has a very interesting 28 pages of material on the subject on their website:

Finally, the author was walking up Queens Road last week and discovered one lonely example of the new garbage carts had been left behind with the following note on the lid. Who knew there were so many rules? Who knew only one person pointed their handles the wrong way?
