‘Meet your Mayor’ at Mayor David Miller’s and Councillor Gord Perks’ Ward 14 Community Environment Day
Date: Saturday, April 17
Time: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. (mayor will be on site from 10:30 to noon)
Location: Wabash Avenue - along Wabash Avenue from Sorauren to MacDonnell
(Councillor Gord Perks will be on hand to meet and greet the public.)

The Community Environment Days are annual events that educate the public about the importance of re-using, re-cycling and safely disposing of their unwanted household items while reducing the waste going to landfill. Arts and craft materials will be collected for reuse. Household hazardous waste and electronics will be accepted for recycling or proper disposal.

Green bins, kitchen containers and other Solid Waste Management and Toronto Water products will be available for purchase or to exchange for broken containers, and will be provided free to new residents (with proper proof of new residency and identification). There will be information showcasing waste reduction, water efficiency, and other green initiatives. And, of course, everyone’s favourite: the giant pile of free leaf compost (limit of one cubic metre per household).
