The City of Toronto sponsors an annual spring cleanup, Clean Toronto Together, over April 20-22 that, so far, has more than 100,000 volunteers from neighbourhoods, schools, and businesses signed up to help their corner of Toronto recover from the dreck and garbage of winter.
Cabbagetown resident and volunteer Sherry Peters is leading a cleanup with the Cabbagetown Residents Association, so mark your calendar for Saturday, April 21, 10 a.m. The Cabbagetown contingent will meet at the corner of Sumach and Winchester streets and will begin with a clean-up of Riverdale Park West.
If there is enough time and volunteers, a second identified clean-up area is Parliament around Wellesley and Amelia Streets, where a winter’s worth of takeout food wrappers have accumulated. The city provides free litter and recycling bags as part of Clean Toronto Together.
Please consider joining forces with your neighbours to make our parks and streets better for everyone.
