The Community Standards Bylaw prohibits leaving appliances outside unless they are in a crate or a locked storage building, so children can't open the appliance by hand.
Keeping Them Safe
To prevent children in the community from being injured, when you discarded appliances:
- Remove handles, hinges, and locks to disable any appliance door with a lock mechanism
- Store appliances in a crate or in a locked storage shed or garage
- Leave appliances outside only when they are due for pick up or removal
You can also dispose of your old appliances at your local ECO station.
