Residents pitch in to help clean up city
  
Works and Emergency Services - It's time for everyone to pitch in to help clean
up Toronto.

Community clean up day will take place on April 26. On this day, residents of
the city are encouraged to help clean up a small part of their neighbourhoods.

Join us this year, along with the GLAD®, to make an even bigger mark.

Community groups, homeowners, tenants, schools and businesses are asked to take
the initiative and help make a difference. Take the time to clean up a public
area such as a neglected laneway, a park, or one of the city's many ravines.

"This is a terrific opportunity for all residents to pitch-in and clean up a
part of their community," said Councillor Brad Duguid, chair of the City's
Works Committee. "It's up to all residents of Toronto to do their part to keep
Toronto clean."

In order to participate in the program, you must call to register by April 17.
If you live in North York, call 416-395-6205; if you live in Scarborough, call
416-396-7372; or, if you live in any other area of the city, call
416-392-7899. Toronto's Works and Emergency Services Department will schedule
special garbage pick-ups to haul the trash away.

"GLAD® has been supporting community clean up day events for many years. We're
proud to partner with the City of Toronto by providing free garbage bags to
help residents get involved to keep their communities clean and green," said
Dave Gordon, Environmental Manager for GLAD®.
