(WINDSOR, ON) – In January, Windsor Council voted to initiate a curbside pick-up of bulky items. There will be a cost of $20 for the service, while at one time the city provided the service free.

Four months later, the service has yet to be implemented. Callers to the city’s 311 information service are told the city is reviewing how it will carry out the service.

There is also, apparently, training being done to acquaint the collectors about how to do the job.

City officials do say the service may start soon, once all the bugs are worked out.

The message that it is no longer free, or even being done for a price, does not seem to have reached residents. Many keep lining residential streets with their bulky refuse.
