Mayor Rob Ford is asking you to bring unwanted household items to a recycling event today. 

He will be hosting a Community Environment Day with councillor Frank Di Giorgio at Amesbury Arena at 155 Culford Rd, near Lawrence Ave and Black Creek Dr.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

You can drop off items like old cell phones, small electronics, printers, fax machines bulbs, TVs, propane tanks and hazardous waste for recycling or safe disposal. 

If you need one, you can pick up a green bin and leaf compost with proof of new residency in the last 90 days.

You are also being asked to donate items like sporting goods, books, medical equipment in good condition, non-perishable food, and art supplies, which will be given to schools or Goodwill for reuse.

Ironically, in 2011, the mayor tried to get council to cut funding to community environment days, but they voted to protect the annual events.
