My Environment Day 2017

It’s that time of year again – Community Environment Day is right around the corner!

Date: Saturday, April 8
Time: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Location: York Mills Collegiate Institute (490 York Mills Road)

Environment Day provides a great opportunity to clear out forgotten items as well as used electronics and household hazardous waste.

You can bring everything from computer equipment and electronics to compact and fluorescent light bulbs for disposal and recycling. Items for donation will also be accepted such as sporting goods, books and small household items like dishes and utensils. Hope to see you there!

Environment Day a Big Success!


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!

York Mills Escalator Overhaul

Both of the escalators at the south entrance to York Mills station have exceeded their 25-year life and are due for an overhaul. The TTC has advised me that starting January 10, it will begin overhauling these escalators.

This means both of these escalators — between Old York Mills Road, the automatic entrance and the passenger pick-up and drop-off to the south end of the subway platform — will be out of service.

Passengers are encouraged to use the street-level and platform-level stairways at to access the south entrance and exit to the station as well as the escalators and stairways at the north entrance and exit, which are still in service.

The overhaul is expected to finish this fall.
