Media Advisory/Photo Opportunity - Toronto residents share a responsible trash disposal solution



    TORONTO, June 25 /CNW/ - The city garbage strike means Torontonians are
seeking trash disposal alternatives. Many residents are concerned about
illegal dumping, and want to be sure that their trash is collected and
disposed of in a responsible, environmentally safe manner.
    Some Toronto residents are working with their neighbours to share a
solution. They are purchasing Waste Management's Rhinobag(TM) - a light
weight, ultra strong bag designed for heavy waste disposal - and jointly
filling it with their household garbage. This way, they avoid the time and
frustration of hauling their trash to a transfer station, and know that their
trash is being safely handled and disposed of by a reputable company.
    This photo opportunity will demonstrate the Rhinobag being used by
Toronto residents.

    
    WHAT:     See a Rhinobag in action as residents fill it with their
              household waste. The demonstration will show how to use a
              Rhinobag, and a boom truck will be on-site to haul the bag once
              full.

              A Waste Management spokesperson will explain how the Rhinobag
              works and how it can be used as an alternative to waste
              disposal.

              One-on-one interviews will be available after the photo
              opportunity.

    WHO:      Local homeowners will be participating in filling the Rhinobag.
              Randy Uens, senior manager of Rhinobag will be available for
              comment.

              Toronto, ON
              M4G 1H2
