Westside landfill closing down

The Westside landfill will finally be closing down starting next week.

Crews will be working from 7 AM to 5 PM, Monday to Friday, over the next two weeks to clear out the area.

Work being done includes site drainage, followed by putting in new fertilizer and natural grass.

This should have minimal impact on customers using the Westside Residential Waste Disposal and Recycling Centre, which will continue to operate during its usual business hours of 7:30 AM to 4PM Friday through Monday.

Back in 2010, the landfill stopped receiving waste due to residential development in the area. Last year, the Ministry of Environment approved the closure.
