For some reason Vancouver has a lot of weeds…
So I decided to take matters into my own hands and went to the #1 source of weed control, Home Depot.
After a look around, it appeared that the weed control section now has taken on the status of cigarettes in Vancouver – nowhere to be found.
After a while, I caved and asked a clerk where I could find Roundup.
First came the look – then the surprise that I didn’t know…
No good reason given nor science to back it up. The lady heard a baby drank it and died.. so they decided the rest of us can’t have it.
Got over it in a few minutes, and decided to buy the “natural” weed killer. Price was reasonable… so goodbye Roundup.
(Before you come down on me, I am not planning on spraying it anywhere kids, dogs, or animals tread. It’s for my driveway)
They decided banning common herbicides wasn’t enough, that people like me should pay an environmental fee for the privilege of keeping my yard tidy. That was $1.20 – best of all, no one knows where this money goes.
After searching the web, I can’t seem to find any list of all these enviro fees I keep getting stuck with.
It seems to be either a dirty secret, or a way the cities raise money.
Can anyone enlighten me where I can find the list? Or Where the money actually goes?
