NOTICE – Enhanced Security at Landfills
The Township of Algonquin Highlands takes workplace safety very seriously and is committed to providing workspaces that are safe and harassment-free. Sadly, incidents of worker harassment have been on the rise, particularly at our Waste Disposal Sites. There have been increased incidents of illegal dumping, failure to pay applicable fees, dumping without authorization, damage to property, theft, and other by-law infractions. In an increasing number of situations, attempts by landfill workers to manage these situations are met with verbal abuse, harassment and threats. This is unacceptable..
