In 2010, Council made the decision to launch a “pilot project” to create a yard waste drop-off site near the Town’s Waste Water Treatment Plant on Davis Drive. Mayor and Council worked with Town staff to allow Creston residents to drop their yard waste off, at no charge, on specified weekends as a convenient alternative to the Creston landfill and monitor who was using this site to determine the benefit. The major reason for exploring this convenience was to reduce, and possibly eliminate, the burning of yard waste which is detrimental to air quality. Over the years, Council expanded the Davis Drive drop-off site to “honour system” and left the security gate open to allow Town residents to drop off their yard waste whenever it was convenient. We know that that this was very much appreciated!
