My Environment Day is a great opportunity to clear out items found during spring cleaning such as used electronics and household hazardous waste. Due to the recently expanded Ward boundaries, I will be hosting not one, but two Community Environment Days this year!
Date: Saturday, April 6
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Location: York Mills Collegiate Institute (490 York Mills Road - East Parking Lot)
Date: Thursday, May 9
Time: 4:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
Location: Leaside Memorial Community Gardens (1073 Millwood Road)
You can bring everything from old computer equipment to compact and fluorescent light bulbs for disposal and recycling. You can also bring items for donation such as sporting goods, books and gently-used dishes.
City staff will also be giving out one cubic meter of compost per household - for free!
Several groups that have partnered with the City on this program will also be attending, including:
Solid Waste Management Services
Live Green Toronto
The Salvation Army

Slow Down Signs Available
"Slow Down" signs are an effective way to remind drivers to respect the speed limit - especially on local and residential streets.If you're interested in getting a sign for your lawn, you can pick one up at one of my upcoming Environment Days!
Quantity is limited - signs will be given out on a first come, first serve basis.
