County plow destroyed bin

After all the snow we have had in the past week, I just wanted to let people know that if you have a garbage bin at the end of your driveway like I did, you should probably move if away from the snowplows.

After all the snow we have had in the past week, I just wanted to let people know that if you have a garbage bin at the end of your driveway like I did, you should probably move if away from the snowplows.

Last week when they were doing snow removal, Red Deer County plowed my garbage bin into the snow bank, completely destroying it. It’s beyond repair.

I sent in pictures to Red Deer County expecting them to do the right thing, replace what they had destroyed. I got a call back the next day responding to my complaint. The result? “I guess all I can do for you is say sorry.”

They will not replace any damaged property, despite the fault on their account.

I think this is unacceptable!

My bin has been in the same spot for four years without any issues.

I’m not upset about the fact it was destroyed, I’m upset about the principle. You break it, replace it!

Thank you Red Deer County for not being accountable for damaging my property!
