Save the Date: My Annual Community Environment Days

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!

Day 1:
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)

Day 2:
 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

  • Toronto Water

  • Live Green Toronto

  • 311 Toronto

  • Toronto Hydro

  • 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.


Ward 25 Community Safety Meeting

I would like to invite you to a community meeting that will be held at the Lawrence Park Community Church (2180 Bayview Avenue) on February 20th, from 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM for all of Ward 25 residents.

Over the past few weeks, several residents have contacted me about crime and safety in Ward 25. In response to these concerns, I reached out to the Chief of Police, Mark Saunders, and asked him to attend this event. Chief Saunders will be accompanied by the Superintendents of Divisions 32, 33, and 53—the three police divisions in Ward 25. This meeting is a rare and important opportunity to voice your concerns directly to top officials at Toronto Police Services and learn more about local policing initiatives.

Please share this information with your neighbours and any members of the community.
