Here was the challenge.
We needed to move approximately 2.5 tonnes of blended, raw wood ash from our storage site at the Rosewarne transfer station in Bracebridge to our three test sites in Muskoka – three volunteer sugar bushes – so that the ash could be spread on the designated test plots. This was equivalent to about 22 garbage cans full of ash for each site, 66 cans in total.
And there was a catch.
Current Ontario regulations dictate that wood ash – at this time classified as a non-hazardous solid waste – must be transported from the storage site by an approved (read licensed) waste hauler.
Aces Waste Management (Muskoka) Ltd. to the rescue!
Thanks to Nick Andrews, Director of Operations for Aces, for volunteering a roll-off bin truck along with John, a most capable and helpful driver, who were dispatched to move these cans to the 3 sites, all of which required superior driving skill for a truck of that size to access.
Success! But we couldn’t have done it without you.
Friends of the Muskoka Watershed is sincerely grateful for the Aces team and its equipment for making these vital deliveries possible.
