Yard waste drop-off depot coming soon

A yard waste drop-off centre could open as early as this month.Ron Neufeld, the city’s manager of operations, said last week that he suspects the new service could be up and running by the end of March.Neufeld said the city is currently finalizing an access agreement with the Wei Wai Kai First Nation because the centre will be located on their lands, about one kilometre from the Shell gas station.The drop-off centre will be manned and likely open Tuesday to Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., year round and will serve as a transfer station to the Comox processing facility.It will be operated by Emterra, the same contractor which provides curbside garbage and recycling pickup to the city.
