One million kg of waste collected
Last year, 112 Community Cleanups were held across the city. You cleaned up 1.3 million kilograms (101 million kg in garbage and 222,000 kg in organics) of waste, saving many trips to the landfill.
Each community association books and manages additional disposal and recycling services for electronics, metals, bicycles, car seats, tires, and paint. Check with your community association for details.
