Parked cars prevent waste collection

I want to express my concern about the Clayton Heights area and how the new waste collection program is set up.

Today we received a note on our recycling saying that it could not be picked up because there was a car within one metre of the bin.

So, to the City of Surrey, which planned these row homes with hardly any street parking as it is, how do they propose we ensure that no one parks in front of our bins?

Now my already-full recycle bin will have to wait another two weeks before it is picked up. Am I to assume that there will be no street parking on pick-up days because we all have to park our bins on the street to avoid people parking there?

And once we have no street parking after the widening on 192 Street is finished, are we supposed to park our bins in the bike lane?

Here is another example of how a lack of sufficient planning has gone into the row home/coach home suburb that is Clayton Heights.
