Dump sites Taxpayers will be on the hook for repairing four parks after city crews chipped asphalt and tore up grass during their post-strike cleanup.

While cleaning and restoring the temporary dump sites last month, workers marred parts of Scarborough Centennial Park, Campbell Park, Moss Park and Christie Pits, a city director said.

“Some of the trucks removing the garbage, like front-end loaders, caused a bit of damage,” said Vincent Sferrazza, director of policy and planning with solid waste management.

The parking lot at Centennial now has a pothole and several notches in its surface, which probably will need to be repaved.

Arena boards at Christie Pits and Campbell were banged up and will have to be repaired, and sod at Moss Park — destroyed beneath the weight of garbage trucks — will have to be replaced.
