'Peggers generally happy with garbage, recycling pickup: poll

  • Print

Despite months of complaints about late pickups or none at all for days, Winnipeg’s new private garbage service seems to be satisfying Winnipeggers this winter, concluded an independent poll released Thursday.

"The findings show that of Winnipeggers with (household) garbage and recycling bins, garbage and recycling pickup was, in fact, completed on the correct day, 9 out of 10 (times)," Prairie Research Associates said in a statement with the poll findings.

Only four per cent of Winnipeg households in the survey had a complaint and then, most often, it was their garbage and recycling wasn’t picked up on the right day. On average the waiting time was two days.

The poll sampled 480 households by phone between Jan. 14 and Jan. 25, asking them about recently weekly garbage and recycling pickup.
