With few exceptions (see this map), the City no longer does mechanical leaf collection (not to be confused with paper bagged leaf collection with garbage – that continues). That means any leaves on the street and gutters stay there, clogging drains when early winter arrives. You can do your part by raking and bagging your leaves and not raking or blowing them on the street.
On behalf of Green 13, Green Parkdale/Roncy and Safe Rail, please join them on Wednesday, November 13th, from 7 to 9 pm at the Swansea Town Hall-Rousseau Room to address concerns about the climate crisis. They will be joined by our elected representatives from all 3 levels of government; City Councillor Gord Perks, MPP Bhutila Karpoche, and recently re-elected MP Arif Virani, as we explore ways to collaborate with them to develop a “community action plan” to address specific environmental issues in the Parkdale/High Park Ward/Riding.
Space is limited, so please RSVP on this Eventbrite link.
