Recycling Program & October Pick up Schedule

Taking out recycling can be a burden! Let us help you out by picking it up and taking it out for you!


We want to make recycling easier for all members, be good to our planet and save on surging garbage costs! To do this, we have assembled a team of member volunteers who are willing to pick up recycling from your unit. It is beyond easy to take advantage of;

1) leave recycling in front of your unit on specified pick up dates / times in a clear plastic bag

2) Repeat on another pick up date. That’s it! We will even provide the clear plastic bags if you need them in advance.

Hedwig & The Angry Inch

Thursday October 5, 8:00pm @ Hart House Theatre 


DFC has purchased a small block of tickets for the Hart House staging of the smash hit play/movie and over all cultural phenomenon Hedwig & The Angry Inch!

Winner of several awards and international acclaim, this musical transforms the theatre into a wild, sexually charged punk rock show. Hedwig, our East German, rock superstar goddess, leads the band and shares their story in a delightfully raunchy way. A victim of a botched sex-change operation, which has left her with just “an angry inch”, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is known for its titillating material that tells a tale of love and bittersweet regret.

We have ten tickets! If you would like to attend, please contact
