Dear Scarborough- Guildwood Neighbours, 

I hope everyone is having an enjoyable summer!  I have had the opportunity to speak to many of you at the many community events which I have been hosting across Scarborough-Guildwood, including the very Guild Alive with Culture Arts Festival, movie nights and barbeques. I am looking forward to seeing you at the upcoming events listed in the calendar section of this newsletter. 

The City of Toronto has been dedicated to enhancing our blue bin recycling program and recently requested the Federal government to develop a national strategy to address plastic pollution, as we work on a process to reduce and/or eliminate single-use or take away packaging. Single -use products are described as disposable hot and cold cups, plastic bags, disposable cutlery, food containers and plastic straws. More information can be found here.

The Toronto Accessibility Advisory Committee has also weighed in on the single use plastics and containers debate.  Long-term care homes and accessibility groups have identified a list of products highly used by people with disabilities; This report can be found here. 

  • Bendable straws for eating and drinking
  • Water bottles 
  • Coffee lids for safety
  • Medical, health and sanitary items 
  • Packaging for pre-prepared meals. 

The next report on single use packaging will be presented to the Infrastructure and Environment Committee and City Council in 2020. 

Your comments are appreciated on this issue.
