My Environment Day at York Mills Collegiate was a great success!

Over 540 people came out to York Mills Collegiate and we collected 4,900 kilograms of donations for Goodwill, 15,525 kilograms of hazardous waste and 10,000 kilograms of electronics. We even had to order a second truck to collect all of the electronic recycling!

Many thanks to all who came out!

Post City Column: Public garden coming to Ward 25

I am excited to announce that my Ward 25 Community Environment Day will take place on April 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m at York Mills Collegiate’s east parking lot (490 York Mills Rd.).

It’s a perfect opportunity to clear out all of those old items in your basements and garages during spring cleaning. Organizations will be on hand to collect old books, clothing and other reusable items, ensuring they have a second life. City of Toronto staff will be collecting household hazardous waste, from solvents to paint to batteries as well as old computer and audiovisual equipment. For the gardening season, you will also be able to pick up free leaf compost.

For those without access to a garden, I am pleased to announce that Ward 25 will soon have a community garden, the result of collaboration with Overland Learning Centre, the Toronto District School Board and a number of engaged residents. Still in its early stages, we are working to have this great addition to our community off the ground as soon as possible.

Outside of Community Environ-ment Day, there are many ways that you can help keep our ward green. The city is helping neighbourhoods organize their own clean up days this spring! Gather your friends, families and neighbours to clean a spot in your neighbourhood that is important to you. Check my website for more information about how we can clean up Toronto together. The sign up deadline is April 15. Last year’s Community Environment Day was a great success, and I look forward to a good turn out on April 27.
