Solid Waste Management, in consultation with Parks, Forestry and Recreation and ML&S, have placed Green Bins in 20 City parks with off-leash areas. The pilot began in May and will be running until the fall. Once the pilot concludes, City staff will look into extending to all parks with off-leash areas. The full list of parks that have Green Bins are posted on toronto.ca/petsinthecity.
With summer almost here and warmer weather on the way, the City of Toronto is reminding residents that they can track their water use online with MyWaterToronto, the City of Toronto’s online water use tool. Use the tool to track your water use by day, week, month or year, to better understand your water use habits and look for ways to save. The tool can also be used to identify prolonged and unexplained water use increases, which can mean you have a leak. You will need your utility bill to sign on to the tool.
