On Monday mornings, the large City of Toronto front-loader garbage truck arrives at Earl Beatty between 8:30 and 8:45 to empty the garbage bin that is located just outside of the school library.
To do this, the truck must drive up over the sidewalk and onto the school property right beside the main entrance for the school and the daycare at the busiest time of the day. Students and parents are walking all about and cars are parked on both sides of the street for drop-off. It is dangerous to have such a large vehicle at the school just as the bell goes.
PLEASE make your voice heard and call the City at 311 and ask for the garbage pick up to be rescheduled to a time when students are in class. If enough people advocate for change now we should see a safer school next September!
