The union representing Toronto’s outside workers has set up a “waste watchers hotline” where residents can lodge complaints about the city’s new privatized trash collection service. On the same day Green for Life Environmental formally took over residential garbage pick-up in the west end, CUPE Local 416 president Mark Ferguson held a news conference to decry the move, urging people to call 1-866-419-2227 to report “shoddy service” or other problems.
