Burnable and Hazardous Materials – On September 9th, 2017 a fire broke out in one of the garbage bins at Castor. Although it is hard to pin point, the suspicion is that a chemical reaction took place leading to the combustion and fire. This is a reminder that no Hazardous Materials are to be taken or accepted at any of the transfer stations. All Hazardous Materials should be taken to the Household Hazardous Waste Roundup held every spring.

Residents must refrain from dumping any burning barrels, vehicle ashtrays or cigarette butts into the bins. All pose a fire hazard creating a safety hazard to people using the site, the Attendants and Emergency Service Responders. Do not place any hazardous materials, chemicals or burnables in the garbage bins.
