After years of controversy and threats to eliminate dumpsters from the entire municipality, on November 14, 2016, Council with the exception of Griffen Salen, voted to move to municipality wide curbside waste and recycling pickup.  It has long been the opinion of a significant number of electorates, that a one size fits all, solution to waste management is not realistic or practical; non-the-less, Council chose to enact a new bylaw, with little notice or electorate input, at a time of the year when the majority of property owners are absent.
