Hamilton’s three community recycling centres are all expected to reopen by Tuesday after a weekend “operational disruption” involving its contractor.
In a release issued on Sunday evening, the city said it’s implemented contingency plans to allow the community recycling centres on Kenora Avenue and Kilbride Road to reopen at 12 p.m. on Monday, while the Olympic Drive centre in Dundas will reopen at 8 a.m. on Tuesday.
The city’s waste transfer stations all reopened at 8 a.m. Monday morning.
The operation disruption was caused by contractor Waste Connections asking for more money due to COVID-19 and an increase in tonnages from more residents clearing out their yards, homes and garages.
