Receptacle Audit reissued….
On March 11, 2000 Junction area residents performed a garbage and litter count along Dundas street from Clendennan to Indian Crescent both north and south sides. Concerned with their findings, as outlined in their report, the residents performed a garbage receptacle audit, to find out how many there were and where they were placed.
Below is a summary of their findings and recommendations from June 19, 2000.
A total of only 13 garbage receptacles were counted. Of which 6 are in a good location, 9 need repositioning for better visibility. We feel that locating them nearer corners for visibility and traffic will help with some of the litter problems. Our recommended locations take into consideration visibility and pedestrian traffic, as well as the type of businesses in the area where litter may be more prevalent. We also considered distance between receptacles so they are spaced out more evenly and consistently. Our recommended locations (24) only 10 more receptacles than are currently available.
