Hazardous Waste Depot

Sunday, June 8, 2014
BFI Canada, 3354 Navan Road (Notre Dame des Champs)

If it’s corrosive, flammable or poisonous it’s hazardous waste. These types of products contaminate water and landfills and should never be poured down the drain or put out with your regular garbage.

To help you dispose of these products safely, the City of Ottawa operates several one-day Household Hazardous Waste Depots for City of Ottawa residents only.

Genevieve Perkins is a Biology graduate student at Carlton University studying domestic cats across Ottawa. She is trying to determine the number of cats across Ottawa by interviewing residents. Her aim is to see what relationships exist between birds, cats, squirrels and raccoons across the city.  She is currently conducting door to door surveys in our area.

Predation by domestic cats is thought to have a negative impact on many birds, rodents and reptiles. In cities the impact on birds may be large due to the high concentration of cats, however, no evidence has been collected within Canada to support these trends. For my research I will be estimating the density of cat numbers throughout Ottawa by interviewing households. I will compare these findings with bird survey data collected under the Ottawa Breeding Bird Count to investigate;

1) if cat density effects the diversity and abundance of bird species; and
2) which bird species are most affected by cat densities.

For any residents who are interested in participating in this research, you can complete a short online survey HERE (approximately 5-10 minutes).
