Thousands get together to clean up city
  
Works and Emergency Services -- The City of Toronto is a little bit cleaner
thanks to the efforts of a few thousand people.

Councillors, residents, schools, businesses and community associations across
Toronto joined together for Community Clean-up Day on Saturday, May 12 to help
make Toronto a cleaner city.

More than 3,500 people participated in this year's event, cleaning up more than
130 locations across the city. The Clorox Company of Canada donated garbage and
recycling bags, and City collection crews hauled away approximately 35 tonnes
of litter.

Groups from Deloitte Consulting, the Boy Scouts of Canada and Girl Guides of
Canada, local schools and many others hit the streets to clean their
neighbourhoods.

"This year's clean-up day was our most successful ever," said Angelos
Bacopoulos, General Manager of the City of Toronto's Solid Waste Management
Services. "It was great to see so many people working together to clean up the
city."

Community Clean-up Day is one of the City's initiatives to keep Toronto's
streets clean.
