The following is from Cameron Baughen, the RDOS Solid Waste Management Coordinator:
The City of Penticton used undressed admail to send out a Curbside Bin brochure which went to every home with ‘V2A’ postal code. That included West Bench, Red Wing and the Carmi area in Area ‘D’. This has confused a number of our residents. There are no changes to the RDOS curbside program for West Bench and Red Wing... The RDOS is only looking at the potential for a garbage cart program in the future. Any RDOS cart program would not be implemented until July 2018, at the very earliest, and only in communities where it makes sense.
