Community garbage cans in the works

Queen Charlotte will likely have 12 new community garbage cans around town by spring.
Management Committee member Vicki Ives has been working on a project to install bear and bird proof cans in places where litter collects. She’ll present the committee with a final proposal for the cost ($7,500 plus shipping and installation) and placement of the cans at its next meeting March 3.
The committee is expected to buy nine of the new cans and the community club two. Ms Ives proposes to put the cans at six bus shelters, the community day park, sani-station, on Wharf St. near Meegans, the ball field, the playground, the triangle across from City Centre, and the plane ramp.
If people have alternate suggestions for where to place them, call the management committee, 559-4765.
