While the old paper calendar may be on its way out, with the new TOWaste app, you’ll never miss your garbage or recycling day again! Available on the Apple Store and on Google Play, the app will tell you what waste items go in which bin, what bins to put out when, and where to donate used items or find a City Drop-off Depot. All of this can be done right from your smartphone or tablet.
This year marks the end of the City of Toronto printed and mailed garbage calendar. Yesterday, despite John’s advocacy, council decided to eliminate the yearly calendar as part of a plan to try and find savings in the solid waste management budget. Eliminating the calendar will save an estimated $850,000.
Starting in 2022, you will receive an insert with your utility bill that will let you know when to put your garbage out.
