Three more neighbourhood garbage dumps have reach capacity at Earlscourt Park, Ted Reeve Arena and Wishing Well Park forcing the city to close them tonight at 7 p.m.
In response a trio of new temporary trash locations will open tomorrow morning.
“All closed sites will continue to be patrolled round-the-clock by both security and city staff and all health and environmental protection measures will continue,” solid waste manager Geoff Rathbone said at a media briefing this afternoon.
Starting on July 16 at 7 a.m. three new temporary trash sites will open:
Clairlea Park Arena in the parking lot at near Warden and St. Clair Aves.
Campbell Park outdoor rink at 225 Campbell Ave. near Dupont St. and Lansdowne Ave.
L’Amoreaux Park’s parking lot at 100 Silver Springs Blvd. east of Birchmount Rd. and north of Finch Ave. East.
