Food Scraps are In!


thumb
Food scraps are now accepted with your yard trimmings, in your yard trimmings cans. As yard trimmings cans are now for both yard trimmings and food scraps, they are called "green cans". Yellow Yard Trimmings Decals are still accepted, but any requests for new decals will be filled with Green Can Decals.

For more information on what to include in your Green Can: click here.

Carpets are Being Reconsidered

thumb

Carpets are experiencing a home decor renaissance, as many people reconsider the practical and aesthetic advantages that have been ignored for quite some time. For example, carpets can provide extra comfort, insulation, noise suppression and safety. A carpet can help make a cold floor more comfortable and provide more cushioning under your feet. In condos, where acoustic insulation can be a very important issue, using carpets can help reliably absorb sound, both between floors as well as within a unit. Families with elders or infants will also appreciate the safety value of non-slip, wall-to-wall carpeting. For those who would like to purchase carpets for their homes, but are concerned about allergens becoming embedded in the fibres, consider the benefits of a modern vacuum cleaner with heavy-duty beaters, powerful suction, and HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Ait) filters, that help eliminate most allergens.
