Mayor hosting Community Environment Day today

You can bring unwanted household items to Amesbury Arena from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

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.

    HYPOCRISY "Mayor hosting Community Environment Day today." Lying creep wanted to cut all funding for this. http://www.nowtoronto.com/daily/story.cfm?content=182852
    SOMEONE MUST CALL HIM ON THIS (the press, citizens?)

    Another example of the desperation of the Ford re-election bid.
    "Rob Ford and Environment Days" - much like "Doug Ford and literacy"
    - it just doesn't jibe.

    Rob Ford is trying to make this mayor race out to be only between Chow and himself.
    Then he could play the right vs left card. Part of the strategy is to pretend John Tory is not a contender. The reason is because character becomes the yardstick for who get elected.

    I urge all conservative voters to put a stop to the damage Ford and his brother have done to this city and its reputation.

    Rob Ford needs us (to survive his political future) but we and the citizens of Toronto do not need him.

    Thanks to all of you.
