Parks R 4 People – Volunteers Needed @ Moss Park
Volunteers are needed between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. 7 days a week at Moss Park, located in the Queen Street East and Sherbourne Street area. The volunteers are needed to educate people dropping off garbage at the temporary dump site located in Moss Park and ask them to consider traveling an extra 5 minutes to the dump site located in an industrial area.
If you are interested in volunteering, please respond to this posting or email for a copy of the information package, including a map to the alternate dump site to provide to people dropping off their garbage.
Even if you only have 30 minutes to spare on your way to work or on your way home, all contributions are welcome. You can also bring the kids and pets.
Thanks for your support!

Just came back from Moss Park.
Moss Park Dump Site to Expand by FOUR Fence Lengths on Monday, July 27, 2009
It was confirmed today that they will be EXPANDING the present Moss Park dump site by 4 fence lengths on Monday, July 27, 2009
Today, CUPE has closed off the driveway to the parking lot (where people drive in to dump garbage.)
The parking lot is almost full, so it would be difficult for people to drive in and drop off garbage. What were they thinking?
They are directing people to drive around the corner to Queen Street.
As a result, the staff are waiting for them, and are removing the garbage from their cars.
There are 2 CUPE staff, standing there watching the team take away garbage, and thanking people for dropping it off.
What valet garbage disposal service.
I parked my car on Queen Street, in front of the truck they are using to load garbage.
I handed out flyers for about 30 minutes.
If anyone can do the same this afternoon, it would be wonderful.
I spoke to the CUPE picket captain, explaining that they were in fact helping people to dump garbage, rather than hindering.
I’ll be back on site by 4:00 today.
Thanks for listening,
Take good care,
A rally was held on Monday July 13, 2009 to protest the dump.

2010-02-07 01:47:14 Well very good start I will be back since I have several pictures from around the dump at the rear of Moss Park Arena during the garbage strike. Thank goodness it is over for another year. One big question I have during the strike is why was there no dump at the Rosedale Ice Rink or the one in Forest Hill? But they had one at Ted Reeve and Moss Park, wonder why?
