TTC pitches in during 20-minute makeover
April 22, 2010The TTC will do its part to make Toronto a bit cleaner tomorrow, during the Mayor’s annual 20-minute makeover. Senior TTC staff will roll up their sleeves, cleaning newspapers from subway cars at Finch Station, while at Ossington Station, TTC Chair Adam Giambrone will test a new TTC street sweeper.
Each night, TTC buses, streetcars and subway vehicles are cleaned. Previously, this material was placed into a waste container and deposited as waste. Previous audits indicated that on average, 75% of the material from the vehicle clean operations was recyclable. As such, employees are now instructed to place recyclables in one bin and waste material in another bin. This program has been very successful, diverting over 4600 metric tonnes since its launch.
