I am hopeful that Terry and Lesley Gierulski are beginning to understand how complex waste management is with their complaint about the “complicated” St. Albert waste collection system (Letter to the Editor, Gazette, Nov. 25). However, this is just the tip of the iceberg.
One of the strategies of modern waste management is to pass on some of these complexities to the waste generators (including Terry and Lesley) with the expectation that knowledge of the complexities may influence decision making, and reduce waste generation at the source. They can probably handle “complicated” waste collection, and strive with the rest of world to reduce and better manage the waste we generate.
