City of Toronto responds to clean-up order
The City of Toronto has responded to the three clean-up orders issued earlier
today by Toronto Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Sheela Basrur. The three
orders concern waste that has been illegally dumped outside the Ingram and
Victoria Park Transfer Stations and inside Trinity-Bellwoods Park.

The City is complying with the orders immediately. The City will begin
clean-up today of Trinity-Bellwoods Park and will complete all other required
work as soon as possible.

The pickets established by striking Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE)
Local 416 members caused significant delays in dropping off waste at the
transfer stations. As a result of the wait times to enter the transfer
stations there was illegal dumping of waste outside the stations which must now
be removed.

The union has been asked to participate with the City in the clean-up and to
work with the City on the establishment of a protocol to reduce wait times for
residents wishing to drop off their waste at established sites.

Compliance with the orders will be done with the assistance of City of Toronto
managers and supervisors and other resources hired by the City.
