City honours more than 80 recipients at second annual Clean and Beautiful City Appreciation Awards
At a City Hall reception this evening, Mayor David Miller presented Appreciation Awards to 12 corporate and business partners that made city wide contributions to the Clean and Beautiful City initiative. This was followed by Councillors presenting awards to more than 70 individuals, businesses, institutions and community groups from across the city.

“I am delighted to salute the collective efforts of everyone who has worked together to contribute to this initiative. It is also my privilege this evening to recognize a group of corporate and business partners who came forward to demonstrate how their organizations could uniquely contribute to Toronto’s Clean and Beautiful City initiative,” said Mayor Miller.

“This initiative is about much more than a superficial clean-up. True, it begins with the worthy goal of getting litter off our streets and out of our parks, but this is only the first step. At its heart, the Clean and Beautiful City initiative reaffirms the City’s commitment to the public realm. It is meant to give Torontonians more pride in their city.”

“Keeping our city clean and beautiful is up to all of us,” said Deputy Mayor, and Chair of the Roundtable on a Beautiful City, Sandra Bussin. “The Appreciation Awards are our way of saying thank you to Toronto residents for the important role they play in making Toronto a more attractive and inviting city for us all to enjoy.”

Now in its second year, the awards recognize outstanding contributions to the Clean and Beautiful City initiative.
