Spring Cleanup, Hazardous Waste and Water Meters!
This week is spring cleanup week. Residents can place bundled twigs along with yard waste, bagged in compostable paper bags on the curb for pickup on their regular garbage day. Plastic bags will not be picked up. Residents may also access the Compost Yard located at Willcocks Road at any time to drop off yard waste and branches (again…. No plastic bags). Wood chips and compost are also available at this location for Morden residents to pick up.
The Household Hazardous Waste Depot located at MWM Environmental’s yard at 456 Jefferson St officially opened up this week. Hours of Operation are Monday & Thursdays 1-4pm. Through our license with Product Care, residents can drop off items such as paint / stain (in the original containers), empty paint cans, aerosols, mineral spirits, paint stripper, bbq lighter fluid; pesticides & toxics with the skull & crossbones symbol such as automotive additives, furniture stripper, etc. This year round facility will replace the annual spring drop-off day.
You can still drop-off household batteries at the Access Event Centre (111 Gilmour Street) or Morden Fire Hall (194 Thornhill Street).
Water Meter Readers will be going through the community to collect water readings. They will be carrying I.D. identifying them as City employees. If for some reason, they are unable to obtain a reading from your home, a card will be left on your door asking you to please provide us with your meter reading before the end of the month.
