KHCA Regular Meeting - June 2011

While there will be updates on 2011 so far, the focus of the evening’s meeting will be on the impact of City Council’s approved changes to household waste collection and diversion policy.
  • The feature will be a presentation with Q&A on the impact on us from the need to rethink and become accustomed to the coming requirements of solid wastes diversion.   We are familiar with the blue box, the black box, the take it back program and special handling of electronic and household hazardous waste.    
  • You may be surprised to find out what plastics are/are not acceptable for the blue box.  More than that the City website indicates that some ‘yard’ waste may not be removed by the contractor.     
  • On top of that we have the switch to weekly green bin pick up. All of this means we need to understand exactly what the “residual” left over stuff will be.
In addition to all this information, you may pick up some green bin liners to take home.  We will have two hundred plus liners made by students of AY Jackson Secondary School for distribution at the meeting.    

This meeting will begin at 7:30 pm in the Community Room at the Katimavik Elementary School, 64 Chimo Drive, Kanata.    All residents of Katimavik-Hazeldean are Welcome.
