At City Council on July 4th/5th, a decision was made to approve the application for a bottle depot at 60 Bowridge Drive NW.

Residents and businesses in the area directly adjacent to the proposed site put forth a compelling argument against the development. All previous applications for a bottle depot at this site were appealed and won by the residents and businesses. This time City Council voted against the residents and businesses and approved the permit.
