A big thank you to everyone who attended my first Community Environment Day on April 30 at York Mills Collegiate Institute. While it was a rainy morning, we had an excellent turnout and it was great to see so many familiar faces.
If you couldn’t make it to my first Community Environment Day, don’t worry – my second Community Environment Day will be held on Thurs., June 8, from 4:00-8:00 p.m. at Leaside Memorial Community Gardens (1073 Millwood Rd.).
Environment Days are a great opportunity to clear out items found during spring cleaning such as used electronics, paints, solvents and glue, batteries, household hazardous waste, and fluorescent bulbs. This year, loose compost will be available for pick-up while supplies last. Please bring your own bucket, bag, or container – these will not be provided at the event. Each family will be limited to a maximum of two containers. In addition to properly disposing of non-landfill items, you can also donate:
- Sporting goods
- Books (excluding textbooks)
- Dress-up clothing and costume jewelry
- Clothing, footwear, accessories, and linens
- Small household items
- Musical instruments and board games
- Eyeglasses, walking aids, and hearing aids; and
- Non-perishable food.
You can find more information on the items that will be accepted for drop-off or donation at my Community Environment Days by visiting www.jayerobinson.ca/community-environment-days-2023. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office at . I look forward to seeing you there!
