Fall 2018 Leaf Collection Schedule

The 2018 Mechanical Leaf Collection will run from November 12th to December 8th. For a full list of streets that will receive this service, please visit here.

Please keep in mind the following points:

  • Only those areas highlighted on the overall and area map will receive the service.

  • To facilitate maximum collection, a day or two prior to the start of scheduled leaf pick-up, leaves should be raked to the edge of, but not onto the travelled portion of the roadway.

  • Leaves should not be placed in ditches or in any way as to obstruct the water flow.

  • No return trips will be made to locations where the start dates have been missed by residents.

  • In the event there is significant snow fall prior to the completion of the program, Road Operations staff will not resume leaf collection, any remaining leaves will have to be bagged for pick-up during regular waste collection days.

For more detailed information please visit the City’s website here. Any inquiries related to this scheduled leaf collection can be directed to 311.

If you have any other questions, please send me an email at councillor_grimes@toronto.ca.

Statement on Provincial Partnership with Business Re: Mimico GO Station.

The Province of Ontario has signed a Letter of Intent with Vandyk Group of Companies regarding the Mimico GO station. As per yesterday's official announcement from Metrolinx, the Minister of Transportation, the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, and Etobicoke-Lakeshore MPP Christine Hogarth, Vandyk will finance and build a new Mimico GO station, in exchange for the right to develop above the new GO station. 

As the City Councillor for the area, I was not provided with any information prior to this announcement. I have concerns regarding over intensification in this area, and the pressure that it places on our local infrastructure. 

I look forward to hearing more about this plan, and about opportunities for community engagement in the process. 

You can read more from the official announcement here.

Sincerely, 

Councillor Mark Grimes
Ward 6, Etobicoke-Lakeshore
