City opens one new residential garbage site, closes another
The City of Toronto has announced the location of an additional temporary waste
disposal site for residential garbage. The new disposal site, Wilket Creek, is
located at 1132 Leslie St. It can be reached via the 1st road north of Eglinton
Ave., west off Leslie St. The site is open immediately to begin accepting
garbage. It will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. seven days a week. (loca tion map)

The City is also closing one of its temporary sites today. The York Mills
Arena site, located at 2539 York Mills Rd. at the southeast corner of York
Mills and Bayview, has reached capacity.

In addition, the Eglinton Park site, north of Eglinton Ave., east of Oriole
Pkwy., west of Edith Dr. is nearing capacity. Residents are asked, if
possible, to use the new Wilket Creek drop-off site instead.

There is a clarification to the Earlscourt Park temporary disposal site
address. Directions should be west side of Lansdowne Ave., north of Davenport

Residents are asked to continue to store dry waste and recyclables until the
labour disruption is resolved. Place food and wet waste in securely-tied,
double plastic bags and bring them to the site that is most convenient.
Residents can bring up to 10 bags to the site per visit.

Residents should bring their garbage to city-designated drop-off sites only.
Please do not drop garbage at illegal dump sites. Garbage stored at the
temporary sites will be contained within a fenced enclosure. Residents are
requested to ensure that they place all waste within the fenced area only.
These sites have 24-hour on-site security and regular management staff
patrols. The locations are also provided with pest and odour controls. All
sites have received approval from the Ministry of the Environment for use as
temporary garbage storage sites.
