Syringe needles to sewing remnants are collected at arena

Ward 26 Environment Day saw brisk business Saturday at Leaside Arena as hundreds of people had a broad range of used, expired and just plain old goods for safe disposal. One potentially hot item was a 40 or 50 year-old Kenmore sewing machine. The many trucks and bins were sponsored by Councillor Burnside through the City’s recycling program. The site was open til 2 p.m.
