Hazardous Waste Disposal at Tunney’s Pasture – 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. The last one this year is on 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.

Romeo and Juliet this Friday

Just a reminder that Romeo and Juliet will be performed by A Company of Fools in our park this Friday at 7pm, with snacks after the show sponsored by your community association. See https://champlainpark.org/2019/07/01/romeo-and-juliet-in-our-park-august-9/ for other information.

Wikipedia: Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare early in his career about two young star-crossed lovers whose deaths ultimately reconcile their feuding families. It was among Shakespeare’s most popular plays during his lifetime and along with Hamlet, is one of his most frequently performed plays. Today, the title characters are regarded as archetypal young lovers.
