Mayor Rob Ford invites residents to take part in Community Environment Day event
Mayor Rob Ford invites members of the public to take part in a City of Toronto Community Environment Day event tomorrow.

Date: Thursday, May 9
Time: 4 to 8 p.m.
Location: Parking lot of former Westwood Theatre - junction of Bloor Street West, Kipling Avenue and Dundas Street West

Community Environment Days are annual events held from April to the end of September. These events collect many types of unwanted household items to reduce waste going to landfill, while educating the public on the importance of re-using, recycling and the safe disposal of material.

Residents can drop off items such as arts and crafts supplies, used clothing, batteries, electronics, small appliances and propane tanks. Recycling containers are available for purchase, or in exchange for damaged containers, or for free to new residents with proper proof of new residency and identification. Free leaf compost is also available.

A list of acceptable items to drop off, along with the 2013 event schedule, are posted on the City web page at

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.8 million people. Toronto's government is dedicated to delivering customer service excellence, creating a transparent and accountable government, reducing the size and cost of government and building a transportation city. For information on non-emergency City services and programs, Toronto residents, businesses and visitors can dial 311, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
