Elliot Lake plans for community cleanup

As part of Landfill Amnesty Week, the Elliot Lake landfill site will be waiving tipping fees.
Clean-up takes place between May 31st and June 5th.
There are no tipping fees, but they will be applied on June 2nd is to avoid having commercial garbage trucks wait in line as they perform curbside pickup.
Residents can bring approximately two cubic metres, roughly the equivalent of a full-size half-ton truck box at no charge.
Hazardous and special waste collection will take place tomorrow throughout the city.
