blue bin update – out of sight, illegal dumping

In a recent letter, Councillor McConnell writes:

“It is not the intention of the [blue bin] program to force residents to store bins in their front flower gardens. If you cannot reasonably accommodate your blue and/or grey bin, you have a storage and placement issue. … In some cases, permission has been granted to put out recycling in clear plastic bags and garbage in tagged bags rather than bins.”

Phone or email Pam for further advice and assistance. Pam’s letter also advises how to report illegal dumping of garbage.

And according to this press release, “Toronto‚Äôs Blue Bin Program has expanded to include plastic shopping bags and foam polystyrene packaging. As of December 9, these items will be collected in the Blue Bin.”
