The only bad thing about the melting of snow is the reveal of months worth of hidden litter. Fortunately the City of Toronto Community Clean-up Days are just around the corner. On Saturday April 18 and Sunday April 19 join your neighbours in beautifying our streets, laneways and parks.
Various parks groups have organized clean-ups you can be a part of or feel free to grab a bag and some gloves and clean up your own street. Garbage and recycling bags are available NOW at Pizza Pizza locations throughout the city and at the East York Civic Centre.
- Monarch Park: Saturday April 18th, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (Friends of Monarch Park)
- East Lynn Park: Saturday April 18th, 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. (DECA & Arthur Potts, MPP Beaches East York)
- Merrill Bridge Road Park: Saturday April 18th, 10:00 a.m. (Merrill Park Dog Association)
- Stephenson Park: Sunday April 19th, 12:oo p.m. to 2:00 p.m. (Friends of Stephenson Park)
Regardless of where you’re cleaning up, all cleaners are welcome to stop by Arthur Potts’s Constituency Office at 1821 Danforth Avenue on Saturday between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. for some hot chocolate and snacks.
If you know of another clean-up happening in the DECA boundaries, let us know in the comments and we’ll include it in our reminder post next week. And to see if there are community clean-ups organized for other parks in East Toronto that may not be in the DECA boundary, check out the City of Toronto’s sign up page.
