On a less disruptive note, the CCCA recently heard back from Ontario Electronic Stewardship about the e-Waste dropoff site fundraiser we had earlier this month. As the CCCA tweeted this past weekend,
Our #Centretown e-Waste site on Oct 6 saved 4.91 tons of electronics from going to landfill. Double our June yield! ^C twitter.com/CentretownCCA/…

People came from across Centretown and beyond (one person said he was from Manotick!). The tracking form they give you only asks you to list the number of cars that pull up, but since only a quarter of Centretowners use a car as their primary mode of transportation, we had just as many walk-ups.
appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board of the City's rezoning of 96 Nepean Street.
Thank you to everyone who volunteered at the event, especially Alice who coordinated things with OES and McNabb. Thanks also to everyone who brought their old electronics, not only for helping us raise funds, but more importantly for keeping it out of the landfill! We'll be having another at the 2013 edition of the Minto Park Sale.
