City of Toronto Blue Bin Design Sprint - Friday November 9
Confused about what belongs in the Blue Bin? Join us for the first-ever Blue Bin Design Sprint on November 9!
The City of Toronto faces a big challenge of managing contaminated recycling – almost 30% of all recycling is contaminated with non-recyclable materials like food waste and clothing, which must be sent to the landfill.
The City of Toronto, in partnership with Civic Hall Toronto, is hosting a design sprint to better understand some of the challenges and frustrations that residents might have around the Blue Bin recycling program. This will help the City improve its programs and communications in an effort to tackle the challenge of Blue Bin recycling contamination head-on. The event will occur on November 9th from 8:30 am – 2:00 pm at The Symes, located at 150 Symes Rd. We are hoping you will be able to attend. The event is free and light food and refreshments will be served.
Personal information is collected by the City of Toronto Act, S. O. 2006, Chapter 11, Schedule A. s.136 (b) & (c) and will be used to keep you informed about the development and outcomes of the Long Term Waste Management Strategy. With the exception of personal information, all comments will become part of the public record. Questions about this collection can be directed to the Manager, Public Consultation Unit, Metro Hall, 55 John St., Toronto, Ontario, M5V 3C6, or call 416-392-2990.
