Freebie table returns to Oak Bay works yard

Public works yard open for garbage, yard waste and recycling of a variety of types

A resident favourite is back at the Oak Bay waste drop-off yard on Elgin Road.

The table of treasures – where people put their used, but still good items for others to peruse – was removed during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic last year.

It was among many measures aimed at limiting spread of the coronavirus. Others included developing a second drop-off site after residents were left waiting hours to use the public works yard drop-off – when only three vehicles were permitted in the municipal transfer station at a time.

To use the drop-off depot residents must display a resident sticker on their vehicle – available at the public works yard. Physical distancing precautions remain in place due to COVID-19.
