Hazardous waste pickup - logistics changes

You are here

Just a head's up for everyone, there will be an upcoming household hazardous waste depot coming up September 20th at Tunney's Pasture. In response to a very reasonable noise complaint I got after the last one - the loudest part of set-up and take-down is directly adjacent to Northwestern neighbours - I asked for some re-jigging before providing my concurrence for the September one. Much of the activity is now being re-located to the other side of Sir Fredrick Banting, a couple of hundred metres further away from houses and with trees and a small berm acting as a buffer. Staff tell me this will also allow an extra lane of unloading capacity - with a very significant improvement in wait times. So, win-win. I hope this will mitigate the noise concern. If it doesn't, as always, we'll adjust. Stay tuned to the City's channels and mine for full details about the depot itself.
