York Quay Neighbourhood Association covers Toronto’s iconic Central Waterfront, with members in every building. YQNA is actively engaged in what shapes our neighbourhood – traffic, transit, planning, cultural and social events, policing, environment, noise, businesses, and the great urban renewal transforming Queens Quay. YQNA welcomes all residents to participate, share their ideas and enjoy our events.
On Saturday, July 18, the YQNA and the Bathurst Quay Neighbourhood Association organised a Waterfront community clean up. Close to 20 volunteers worked from 9 am to 3 pm cleaning out 21 overflowing garbage bins along Queen’s Quay from Bay to Stadium Road (approximately 2 kilometers).
All together we filled 52 garbage bags.
The successful clean up was made possible with the assistance of the Waterfront BIA, Harbour Castle Hotel, Radisson Hotel, and the 15 individual property managers of condo buildings along QQ who each allowed us to throw two or three filled bags into their individual bins.
Another Waterfront community clean up is being considered for the middle of August.
