Businesses, Vendors Asked to Keep City Clean for Long Weekend
As Toronto continues its "Clean Toronto" anti-litter campaign, businesses and
vendors are being asked to follow proper procedures relating to the collection
of garbage from their premises.

Throughout the Victoria Day weekend, police and city by-law enforcement
officers will be making sure that garbage is placed out properly and at the
correct time. Failure to do so could result in fines being levied.

"It is imperative that all members of the business community follow the rules
and regulations of proper garbage collection," said Councillor Olivia Chow, who
helped kickoff Chinatown's Clean Toronto campaign with Mayor Mel Lastman last
week. "Remember to clean the sidewalk around your business after the work day
is completed. It will show how committed we are to having clean streets in the
City of Toronto."

Residents and businesses are reminded that if they see garbage on the street
that needs to be cleaned up, to call the city's anti-litter hotline number at
39-CLEAN (416-392-5326).
