A lot of flood damaged debris is piling up at the special landfill set up for the purpose.
CBRM Solid Waste Manager Francis Campbell told CBC 4,000 tonnes have been picked up at the curbs and hauled to the site since the floods. Normal weekly pickups usually result in 700-800 tonnes. Even the Heavy garbage pickup in the spring usually nets about 2,500 tonnes. Campbell says you can see people’s entire households there.
