A new waste diversion option is available at the Bensfort Road Landfill. Customers will see a new addition at the facility starting this week. A “Reuse Building” is now in place at the drop-off platform, allowing people to set aside items they believe someone else might want. Those who see something they like can take it home, free of charge.
Putting material at the Reuse Building does not mean it can be brought to the facility for free; customers will pay the same tipping fee as usual. It simply allows for the possibility of diversion and setting items at the Reuse Building is optional. The City hopes many articles, such as wooden furniture, sporting goods, small appliances, tools and much more can find a second life through “The Bensfort Boutique”
Tipping fees still apply.
