Toronto’s private garbage collection has a mediocre few months
—Total number of curbside collection complaints lodged between January and March against Green for Life, the private contractor that handles garbage pickup in the western half of the city, according to a recent report. By comparison, the unionized city workers who collect garbage east of Yonge Street racked up only 2,844 complaints. (Both numbers are within what the city considers to be acceptable limits.) This is the latest in a run of bad news for GFL. Earlier this month, the company lost its Etobicoke contract because of a black mark on its driving record.
