4.14                      The City does not collect construction or renovation waste such as kitchen counter tops, cupboards, drywall, lumber or any other materials of this nature, as per City ofToronto Municipal Code, Chapter 844, Section 8A.  To arrange for this disposal of items of this nature, please contact a private hauler for proper disposal and co-ordinate this with the building superintendent.
