Stinky situation avoided

The City of Kelowna and Regional District of Central Okanagan have done some juggling to ensure the region doesn’t become a big, steaming pile of stink this summer.

When the city last year awarded the 10-year, $50-million curbside garbage pickup contract to Toronto’s Environmental 360 Solutions, it created a potential five-month gap in coverage.

The existing contract with a Kelowna company, OK Environmental Waste Systems, was set to expire on April 30, and E360 wasn’t scheduled to begin serving the Central Okanagan until Oct. 1.

To ensure garbage, recycling and yard waste was picked up between May 1 and Sept. 30, the city asked both companies to move their end and start dates.

OK Environmental extended its contract until the end of May, while E360 will now start on June 1.
