The VCA has been asked to assist in sharing this message to all residents.
We know in the past when Brookfield was building out the phases of The Village residents were told to dump garbage, packing materials, building surplus, etc. in the dumpsters provided by Brookfield. It was a convenience for those of us moving in before the regular Regional Garbage collection was operational.
Unfortunately some residents are now treating the dumpsters owned by Shoppers, CIBC and The Garrison House in the same way. These dumpsters are NOT available to the public and the collections services are paid by the businesses in the plaza. The plaza tenants are alarmed to find their dumpsters full of household materials when they need them to dispose of their business garbage.
Same for the dumpsters used by the construction workers in the newest phase on Perez. The contractor there is also paying for the dumpster and collection service for the business – not for the convenience of the residents.
Residents continuing to dump materials in the dumpsters can be charged with illegal dumping.
