Hazardous Waste Disposal at Tunney’s Pasture – May 5, Sept 15

As described in https://ottawa.ca/en/residents/garbage-and-recycling/hazardous-waste-and-special-items we have local waste depots twice this year, for disposing of paint, old electronics and other things too dangerous for regular garbage.

The depot runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Tunney’s Pasture. Dates this year are:
Sunday, May 5, 2019
Sunday, September 15, 2019

Some of the odder and more dangerous things I’ve brought and the chemical experts at the depot had fun looking over – old gardening chemicals with Malathion (still used for West Nile mosquitoes), DDT and Chlordane.

More Sandbagging at Westboro

Our neighbours to the west in Westboro could use some help with reinforcing the sandbagging at the north part of Churchill Avenue. If you have an hour to spare (or a wheelbarrow or other sandbag mover), head over to there (about a 20 minute walk). Details in their Facebook post.

P.S. At last night’s FCA Board meeting, I proposed that all CA’s would benefit from working together and learning from each other’s experiences. With rising waters on many people’s minds, agreement was unanimous. The FCA will develop a means of doing so.
