New bins are installed and ready to be used by dog owners on the Valley Trail at Sun Peaks, confirmed Sun Peaks’ municipality CAO Byron Johnson. The bins were installed at the end of June.
The next step for the municipality is to get a company that will service the new bins, which means emptying the containers and restocking the bags in the dispenser. Sun Peaks Resort Corporation will do the maintenance in the interim.
The municipality is looking for expressions of interest from anyone who’d like to service the bins. “The request for the quotations will be on the municipality website,” said Johnson.
The council found that there were insufficient bins along the trail and decided to add three more to curb the problem of improper disposal of dog excrement.
