Tribune Express - - ACTUALITÉS / NEWS - GREGG CHAMBERLAIN [email protected]

There are still some piles of un­wan­ted and un­col­lec­tible gar­bage sit­ting along some road­sides in Cham­plain Town­ship af­ter the an­nual spring clea­nup for hou­se­holds last month. That is get­ting town­ship coun­cil an­noyed.

Once a year, re­si­dents are al­lo­wed to put out cer­tain un­wan­ted items for pi­ckup and de­po­sit at the land­fill wi­thout ha­ving to pay the town­ship dis­po­sal fee.

The problem is that there are res­tric­tions and li­mits on what people are al­lo­wed to set out for col­lec­tion du­ring the spring clea­nup. The by­law for the pro­gram states how large a load is al­lo­wed for each ho­meow­ner for spring clea­nup col­lec­tion and al­so states what items are not al­lo­wed.

This of­fer on­ly ap­plies to ho­meow­ners who put out stuff for the spring clea­nup, which was not al­lo­wed un­der the by­law, and it does not ap­ply to any new gar­bage items of which they might want to dis­pose.
