Take it to the private dump off Keating X in Central Saanich. I can't remember what it's called but you can dump just about anything and it's by weight.


D&L Bins. My favorite Saturday afternoon adventure spot. Best dump on the planet.

We only have a small car. Much of the garbage is ruined carpet from our basement flood, which since it's been in our garage all winter, has likely  had rats crawling over it as they are rampant in Fairfield. It's all in bits, pieces and tatters so is probably a health hazard. Also broken chairs, vacuums that don't work, that sort of thing.

Sounds like I could get a lot more use out of your garage than you do.  Let's trade homes :)

...even if you're not living there...you could have dropped all that crap off there as a donation...I think broken chairs and vacuums that don't work were on their Facebook begging list.

Someone here left an old couch out on the side of the road with a "free" sign on it, it didn't go, then they changed the sign to $50, was gone the next morning.

Rent a Uhaul pickup for $20, load 'er up and head over to the Peninsula. You can dump all of that stuff.

Know it all.

hahaha! Nope, only have to walk by it twice a day. Ya, I know, we need to rent a truck or something. But hey, if those tenters are getting so much for free, why can't we have better garbage pickup like just about every other city in Canada? Why are we paying taxes? :confused:

Once your waste is picked up, we come to your home with our state-of-the-art cleaning vehicle. Your bins are then placed in an enclosed unit and exposed to high-pressure hot water cleaning. Waste water is then reclaimed in our unit. Once cleaned, both inside and out, an environmentally friendly, biodegradable deodorizer is placed inside and your bins are placed back where we found them.

Our system is 100% environmentally friendly and fully self-contained.  Additionally, all waste water will be disposed of safely at a locally approved treatment facility, so the chemicals we use cause no harm to the storm water system or environment in the way manual cleaning does. After the cleaning process, the hydraulic lift returns the container to the curbside where our technician will sanitize the inside and outside of your can(s) to ensure they are fresh, clean and ready to return to your property. Finally, we place an easily removable tag on the handle (no adhesives are used) to confirm that the container has been processed.

Would you like to sort through garbage at the dump for about a week?  How about for $20 per hour?

Yeah sure "auditors". Probably more like food scraps inspectors. Watch out Victoria that piece of lettuce you threw out is going to cost you.

Wouldn't that be the perfect job for some of our local binners?

Sounds like someone needs to reduce their daily baking order.

I don't blame them for not wanting to sell out (unlike Empire Donuts), and if that's like less than 10%, it seems reasonable.  But the landfill thing seems a bit strange.  I mean... it's bread.   Considering it's being thrown away because it's getting old, as in it has a pretty short life.  I can't believe it can not be used as a foodstock somehow.  Dog treats?
