Kits Community Centre, 2690 Larch Ave. The depot will be held in the patio outside of the south entrance to the community centre, immediately north of 12th and Larch.
Cost: Most of the year it's free, but the 2016 Neighbourhood Small Grant $ can't spill over, so we have to collect $ this time to cover pickup costs. Requested donation is $7/full large 30-50 gallon bag or $4/1/2 30-50 gallon bag, etc. (Pending a successful grant application) free depots will resume in April or May.
RSVP: firstname.lastname@example.org or here.
