Media Advisory - Mayor David Miller and Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti’s Community Environment Day event
  
Mayor David Miller and Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti invite members of the media to attend their Community Environment Day event. Mayor Miller and Councillor Mammoliti will be on-site to meet and greet residents from 11 a.m. to noon.

Date: Saturday, May 3
Time: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Location: southeast corner of Finch Ave. W. and Weston Rd., parking lot (former Canadian Tire site)

The City’s Community Environment Days are annual events that educate the public on the importance of reusing, recycling and safely disposing of their unused household items, while reducing the waste going to landfill. Recycling containers will be available for purchase or for free to new residents (with proper proof of new residency and identification). Residents may also exchange broken recycling containers for new ones. Water efficiency tools will be available for sale, including rain barrels and indoor kits. In addition, there will be a paint exchange and free leaf compost.
