Curb Side Give Away Weekend

In conjunction with Fall Clean Up Week 2016 the Town of Massey Drive will be holding a curb side give away weekend on October 1 and 2. The purpose of the curb side give away is to reduce the amount of garbage that ends up in the land fill by diverting items that can be re-used or re-purposed. If you have items you no longer have any use for, but may be of use to someone else, this will be a good chance to pass them on. Items can be placed at curb side on Friday evening and be available for pick up throughout the weekend. Items not collected and left at curb side on Monday October 3 will be collected by town staff as part of the regular clean up week collections throughout the week of October 3-7.



Items can include such things as:



Books, CDs and DVDs,furniture and small appliances, sports equipment, bikes and toys, tools, yard and gardening equipment, kitchen gadgets, dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, electronics, clothing, paint, etc.

Dogs on Trail

We are receiving an increasing number of complaints from users of the Tippings Pond Nature Trail about dogs not being tethered while on the trail. Regulation requiring dogs to be tethered at all times while on the trail are in place to ensure that everyone can enjoy using the trail. We have heard from regular trail users who no longer walk the trail for fear of dogs not under the control of their owners. It is our hope that the trail can remain accessible to people walking their dogs, however, in order for this to continue dog owners will have to be respectful of other trail users and the regulations requiring dogs to be on a leash at all times while on the trail.
