The City of Toronto continues to see a significant amount of garbage and other non-recyclable materials in the Blue Bin recycling program. When residents put a Blue Bin out for collection that contains too many non-recyclable items, the materials cannot be sorted and can ruin perfectly good recycling that must be sent to landfill.

Dear Liberty Village neighbours,

I am writing to obtain your feedback about an urgent and possibly exciting opportunity for a new childcare centre in Liberty Village. Just last week, I spoke to staff in the Children’s Services division about the demand for childcare spaces in the area and found out that the City has money available to help create a new childcare centre in Liberty Village.
