Iqaluit has stopped accepting metal at the city landfill temporarily.
The city made the announcement Tuesday, citing the amount of metal waste already on site is creating a safety risk for staff and the public.
Staff are working to reduce and organize the volume of metal that’s there now so the landfill can begin accepting metal waste again at some point in the future.
