Mayor to Torontonians: Work with us
  
Mayor Mel Lastman today urged citizens and businesses affected by the CUPE
Local 416 strike to "work with the city" and take responsibility for their own
garbage.

"I'm asking everyone to be a good citizen," Lastman said. "Please, don't leave
garbage in the street if it's not being picked up by private contractors. Find
a way to deal with it while we try and find a solution to the strike."

Lastman said six of the City's waste transfer stations will be accepting both
residential and commercial waste, seven days a week. Another five emergency
locations have been set up which will accept up to ten bags of residential or
commercial waste per trip.

"By working together, we'll get through this," the Mayor said.

For information on waste transfer station hours or locations, call the Access
Toronto hotline at 416-338-0338 or visit
