Grandview Village is a condo for 55+ adults. We have 108 suites, 58 of which are occupied by one person; the other 50 have two people – the maximum occupancy of a suite is two.
The City of Lethbridge has informed us that a universal recycling fee of $7 per month per suite will be added to all utility bills with no opt-out option. If you do the math, 108 units at $7 = $756 per month. The cost for our weekly garbage collection for two dumpsters is $373 per month and from what we understand, the recycling dumpsters will be collected every two weeks.
How is this not inequitable?
As each suite will not have its own blue bin, the City is not required to pick up 108 blue bins, but instead empties four slightly larger dumpsters twice per month.
Come on, Mr. Spearman, do you not see the inequity here? It isn’t rocket science – let’s play fair!
