TEA Volunteers talk WASTE FREE!

In 2014, volunteers took TEA's Waste Free Toronto Campaign to Community Environment Days around the city.

Since CEDs (Community Environment Days) are all about waste diversion, they provide a great opportunity for TEA volunteers to talk about waste issues

Waste-Game-Volunteers.jpgThe Waste Game is designed to engage kids and parents together. Players have to decide whether items belong in Recycling, Green Bin for Compost, Harzardous Waste, or Garbage. 

At a CED every year, in a park in each ward, Torontonians can:

  • donate re-usable household items
  • turn in toxic waste and electronic waste for proper disposal
  • pick up green bins and blue bins, or exchange damaged ones
  • help themselves to free compost for their gardens 

Find your local Community Environment Day for 2015 on the City of Toronto website.
