Following a recent meal at the Tsawwassen McDonald’s, I looked around for a recycling bin.
Not finding one, I asked a staff member is there was one. She told me no.
What a stunning rebuke of the moronic .25 cent fee demanded of consumers for the use of a paper bag at a drive-thru.
We have a government mandated profit for a private corporation, all in the name of reducing waste, and the very corporation profiting from this mandate can't be bothered to actually recycle themselves.
Mayor Harvie, you and your council have utterly failed with this mandate. You will not achieve any reduction in waste, let alone plastic waste, with this fee.
You also convince people like me that the entire recycling program is a waste of time and money.
