The students will be recognized for their interest in Toronto's recycling program. They wrote to the City earlier this year asking when clamshell containers will be accepted for recycling in Toronto. A clamshell is a one-piece container consisting of two halves - hinged and shaped like a clam - that is often used for takeout foods.

At the committee meeting, members will receive a report from Solid Waste Management Services indicating that Toronto will begin adding clamshells and other plastics that were previously put in the garbage to the Blue Bin program starting this fall.

Toronto is Canada's largest city and sixth largest government, and home to a diverse population of about 2.7 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.
