Replace Old Green Bin
Replace old green bins used for food waste that may not close properly, which makes it easy for critters and coyotes to get to the food inside. Halton Region will replace old bins with new, sturdier bins with a better latch. Drop off your old bin and pick up a new one at the Halton Waste Management Site at 5400 Regional Road 25 in Milton. I just picked mine up this week.
If a resident is clearly unable to visit the landfill site, call 311 and staff will forward your call to the waste management division for review and follow-up.
Residents may visit the landfill Monday to Saturday to exchange an old GreenCart for a new. You can also exchange an old Blue Box for a new one. The landfill will also be open Sundays for a pilot project, that commences April 17 through to July 10.
Place bin out in the morning
Don’t place your bin out till the morning of your pickup. Placing it out at night can attract animals.
Coyote Response Strategy:
On Nov. 23, 2015, City Council approved a Coyote Response Strategy, which outlines an escalating approach to dealing with coyotoes, from education to removal, depending on the type of interactions observed or reported with coyotes. You can read the Council minutes, and the staff report that went to the Nov. 9, Development & Infrastructure meeting below:
Please call our animal shelter with reports of coyotes, so we can investigate. The animal shelter number is 905-335-3030. You can also report sightings online at SeeClickFix.com.
