Trash Talk - Waste Collection Reminders

Collectors work hard every day to ensure your waste disappears from the curb. Please keep the following in mind to help make collection safe and efficient:

  • Have waste out by 7 am. Ensure it is at the curb, not up on your property.
  • Bags and containers should not be too heavy and should not tear when lifted.
  • Break down boxes and bag all recyclables.
  • Ensure all items, including branches, are no greater than 1.2 meters in length.
  • Bag items such as kitty litter, ashes, shredded paper, Styrofoam and doggy doo.
  • Avoid parking in front of any bin or cart, especially at multi-unit buildings or in the cart pilot areas.

Remember to bring all hazardous, electronic, large and heavy items to the Transfer Station for proper handling and disposal.

Roots of Empathy

Are you a proud parent with a new baby? Will your baby be 2-4 months old in October?

You and your baby could be a Roots of Empathy Family. Roots of Empathy is a program for elementary school children.
The program’s aim is to increase empathy - the ability to understand how another person feels.

Children learn to care for and respect each other, and there is less bullying and aggression. Be a Roots of Empathy Family.

  • A baby with one or both parents visits a local classroom over the course of a school year with a Roots of Empathy Instructor.
  • The visits are about 30 minutes long, once a month starting in October.
  • The program helps children to learn about a baby’s needs and how babies develop and lets children observe the loving relationship between a parent and baby.
  • Babies must be between 2 and 4 months old in October.

“Roots of Empathy is about changing the world, child by child.”
- Mary Gordon, Founder/President
