‘Let the facts speak for themselves’

Dear Editor,

I would like to respond to last weeks’ letter by the Chamber of Commerce regarding the local solid waste scene (Jan 20: Chamber president weighs in on ‘garbagegate’)

A brief history will clarify White Disposals Ltd’s situation. We have been providing the Upper Fraser Valley with a solid waste disposal service since 1984.

In 1997 we added a recycling and a green waste program to our household service. We purchased two state-of-the-art dual-compartment trucks for keeping the regular household garbage separate from the recyclable materials and the yard waste. At this time we provided weekly service to over 3,500 homes and businesses.  

The City of Chilliwack took over the garbage and recycling service in 2005. We put in a tender but ultimately lost out.

We continue to provide household garbage and recycling service to select areas of the GVRD and the District of Kent.

In the meanwhile we have expanded our business to include commercial dumpsters and roll-off containers. We are not trying to make anyone look bad, especially in an election year. All we want is to eliminate any misconceptions about White Disposals Ltd. and we let the facts speak for themselves.
