Round up those old paint cans and broken electronics. The annual Community Environment Day, hosted by Councillor Gord Perks and the City of Toronto, takes place Saturday, April 23, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wabash Avenue by Sorauren Park.
Car traffic will be modified during these times to accommodate the event.
The event is a great way to properly dispose of household hazardous waste including old batteries, solvents, fluorescent bulbs, expired medications and more. Crews also accept old electronics including cell phones, computers, printers and TVs.
The City publishes a full list of accepted material, including supplies that will be reused such as arts and crafts materials, clothing in good condition, and much more.
You can also buy kitchen green bins, pick up free compost, and learn more about City environmental efforts.
