Mayor David Miller joins Councillor Frank Di Giorgio’s Community Environment Day event
Mayor David Miller and Councillor Frank Di Giorgio (Ward 12 York South-Weston) invite members of the media to attend a Community Environment Day event.

Date: Saturday, April 25

Time: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Location: Amesbury Arena parking lot
155 Culford Rd.
(south of Lawrence Avenue West, east of Black Creek Drive)

Mayor Miller and Councillor Di Giorgio will be there from noon to 1 p.m. to meet and greet the public.

The Community Environment Days are annual events that educate the public on the importance of re-using, re-cycling and safely disposing of their unused household items while reducing the waste going to landfill. Recycling containers will be available for purchase, or to exchange for broken ones, or for free to new residents (with proper proof of new residency and identification). There will be water efficiency tools for sale such as rain barrels and indoor kits. And, of course, everyone’s favourite: the giant pile of free leaf compost.
