Pesticide Treatment for Dog Strangling Vine in High Park

Posted on June 26, 2019

Urban Forestry will be initiating their annual management plan of Dog Strangling Vine in High Park beginning in July.

Dog-strangling vine is a herbaceous weed that forms dense colonies. Dog-strangling vine impacts native plants and habitat by:

  • crowding out and smothering native vegetation and young trees
  • decreasing survival of monarch butterfly larvae by mimicking native milkweeds
  • increasing selective grazing on remaining native vegetation by deer and other browsing animals
  • decreasing abundance of insects and pollinators
  • reducing habitat for grassland birds.

Various sections of the Natural areas in High Park are managed for Dog Strangling Vine on a cyclical basis.  Treatment in these areas will take place intermittently during the period of early July to end of August.

Although the pesticide being applied (glyphosate) has a low acute toxicity for people and animals, it is wise to reduce your and your pet’s exposure. Please see the attached document for more information.

The pesticide treatment area is marked with signs at every entry point around its edge. Warning signage will be posted 24 hours before treatment and be removed 48 hours following treatment.

Blue Bin inspections resumed for 2019

Posted on June 18, 2019

The wrong items in recycling – otherwise known as contamination – continues to be a major issue is costing the City millions annually in additional processing costs.

Over the past several years, in an effort to reduce contamination, the City has done extensive public education and implemented a wide array of programs, initiatives, and services, including inspections of single-family residential Blue Bins.

Blue Bin inspections started back up this spring and will continue throughout 2019. When significant contamination is found, the Bin will be stickered, pushed back from the curb and not collected. A sorting Guide and Notice indicating why the Bin was not collected and instructing the resident to remove the contamination before the next recycling collection day will be left in the homeowner’s mailbox.

For information on the appropriate bins for waste, visit the Waste Wizard online at toronto.ca/wastewizard or on the TOwaste app. Residents can also visit toronto.ca/recycleright to get recycling tips and learn what does and does not go in the Blue Bin.
