Community Environment Days
City of Toronto residents can take dozens of recyclable and/or reusable items that are not accepted in their curbside collection program to annual waste diversion events. These community events are hosted by City Councillors.
By participating in a local Environment Day event, residents can reduce the amount of waste going to landfill and ensure that it is properly recycled, safely disposed of or distributed for re-use.
Residents can also purchase waste diversion containers (recycling boxes, green bins/kitchen containers and yard waste bins) and rain barrels, and pick up free leaf compost.
Environment Days run April through October. Start gathering your items now for next season.

The Smog Summit is an initiative of the Greater Toronto Area Clean Air Council and is coordinated through the Clean Air Partnership.
Bike Month is Toronto's festival for cycling culture.
The City of Toronto's efforts to promote cycling dates back to Bike-to-Work Day launched in 1988. Enthusiastic public response helped Bike-to-Work Day become Bike Week and evolve over the years. A day became a week and now we have a whole month dedicated to cycling!
The Toronto Cycling Committee has been helping to support, develop and co-ordinate Bike Month with other individuals, bicycle user groups and organizations. The Toronto Cycling Committee hosts a group ride and a free pancake breakfast every year that have become popular events.
Join cyclists from across the city at a Bike Month event near you.
