Thanks to all of you for attending our meeting last week.

The LTTA Steering Committee has proposed that general meetings be held on a quarterly basis rather than monthly.  The Steering Committee will continue to meet monthly to review ongoing issues and projects.  Please use the contact form to contact the Steering Committee with their concerns and suggestions.  The LTTA invites tenants to join the Steering Committee which welcomes fresh faces and input.

The next meeting will be held Tuesday December 12th.

You can find the detailed minutes here.

We have received kitchen bins from the City of Toronto, for you to collect food waste. This is part of our new program to increase organic and garbage recycling in #85 and #95.

Please come to the Management Office during regular office hours, to pick up your bin.

Hurry, because the supply is limited.

We also have Organic Waste collection instructions available in Chinese and Arabic. Just ask for a sheet when you pick up your bin. Information in English has already been distributed in your mailboxes.

Bags to collect recycling waste will be available at a later date. Stay tuned for an announcement.

Thank-you for your co-operation in helping Leaside Towers to

Reduce! Re-use! Recycle!

(A reminder that the two large metal Green Bins to collect your kitchen waste are located behind #85 on the B1 level)

A defibrillator is located behind the sign-in desk between the gym and the Party Room.  The device will talk you through the procedure but should a problem arise, please call 911, then the PPL desk at (416) 421-2971 or Security at (416) 906-7970 or (647) 462-0404.

Please take a look the next time you are in the area, so you know exactly where to find it.

The 3Rs Ambassador Program Comes To Leaside Towers!

The City of Toronto has launched the 3Rs Ambassador Program to increase the Reduce – ReUse – Recycle (3Rs) rates in apartment buildings and condos across the city. While many of our residents do use the recycling facilities in our buildings – we can always do better!

That is why the newly formed 3Rs Committee is looking for people to join the 3Rs effort by becoming:

  • A 3Rs Ambassador (3 training hours, followed by ongoing efforts)
  • A building or floor rep (on-call; 1 to 2 hours/week)

Why Join the Effort?

  • Help the environment
  • Reduce our buildings’ garbage costs
  • Get to know our neighbours
  • Help the City reach the waste diversion target of 70%
  • Meet people who are passionate about waste management
  • Earn volunteer hours – especially for our young people

If we can get enough 3Rs Ambassador volunteers, we can arrange a training session here. Meanwhile, the next official training session will take place on May 3 from 1 to 4 p.m.

For more information, or if you’d like to help, please contact GreenLeaside@gmail.com.
