Toronto Catholic District School Board

Welcome back St.Vincent de Paul staff, students and community members.
 
We are starting this school year off with a bang by introducing organic waste collection at our school! Last year we were awarded silver for our amazing Eco-friendly efforts.  Congratulations on a job well done. This year, we are going for gold!  If you would like to join our team or help in any way, please contact Ms. Strong (FDK Teacher) or Mrs. Zampino (Grade 3 Teacher) at the school for more information.
 
Thank you for your continued support in greening our school!
 
INTRODUCING THE GREEN BIN PROGRAM!
 
We are pleased to inform you that the City of Toronto has extended the Green Bin program to all schools across the Toronto Catholic District School Board. The Green Bin Program separates organic food materials (kitchen waste) from the regular garbage stream. The Green Bin Program was introduced to City Residents in 2002 and to date 90% of the City’s single family homes participate in this collection. On April 29, 2013, Associate Directors Council approved the implementation of an organic waste separation program at all TCDSB sites. Attached(see below) you will find the City’s information guide and poster. This attachment identifies the different waste and recycling streams which will go into the different collection vessels.
 
The Toronto Catholic District School Board believes in the critical role that our Catholic schools play in promoting environmental responsibility and in providing leadership and direction for the protection and conservation of the environment. Please help your child(ren) to understand how we sort our garbage and how important it is to advocate for our earth. We will be distributing kitchen catchers to classrooms this week!
 
Thank you for your help on this very important initiative,
 
The SVDP Caretakers and Eco Team
Go Clean! Go Green! Go Eco Team!
