DESTRUCTOR TO BE CLOSED

ALL RUBBISH TO BE

BURIED

USE OF THIRD PIT AT CHANEYS

The city destructor will not be used after to-day, according to a statement yesterday by the Mayor (Mr J. W. Beanland), and after that all rubbish will be buried in pits. Mr Beanland explained that it was not the intention of the council to demolish the destructor immediately, although that would ultimately be done, for the tall chimney was considered a danger to the machinery house in the Municipal Electricity Department’s buildii •* nearby. For some time the destructor has been working at only half its capacity. Ihe present staff is of eight men and these will be transferred to other work after to-day. All the new trucks —rdered for the collection of garbage are m commission except one, and this should be available in a few days. The Mayor said that in the meantime rubbish collected in the northern area of the ntj would be taken to the Spreydon and Opawa dumps for disposal, but it was intended soon to use a third dump at Chaneys, on council property.
