Kitchen scrap containers must be raccoon-proof

It is a great idea for the city to collect kitchen scraps for composting.

However, the green containers need to be tightly secured – and I mean tightly – as in guaranteed tight.

No doubt raccoons, the population of which is abundant in this part of the city, will follow their sense of smell and overturn these kitchen scrap containers and pry off the lids as they have done repeatedly with my garbage cans, even when they were weighted down with bricks. This would result in me having to clean up the mess. Yuck, dirty hands.

City Hall please take note.
