Mayor's Message

On behalf of King Township Council, welcome to the September edition of the King Bulletin.

I’d like to remind everyone that school is about to start a new year and we all need to take extra care on our roads. Many children will be walking and biking—especially near school and residential areas—in the days ahead.

Don’t rush through stop signs or traffic lights, stop for busses when their lights are flashing and, if you have school-age children, teach them about crossing streets safely and how to obey street signs and signals. It’s up to all of us working together to keep our children safe.

King Township Mayor's Cultural Gala

The Township of King will be partnering with the King Township Historical Society (KTHS) and Arts Society King (ASK) to bring you the second biannual Mayor's Cultural Gala in support of arts, culture and heritage in King Township on Thursday, Sept. 29 at The Manor, 16750 Weston Road.

Funds raised from this event will go towards supporting the important work of the KTHS, ASK and the King Heritage and Cultural Centre. This will include arts, culture, heritage-based programming, exhibitions and special events, as well as the preservation and restoration of important heritage buildings.

Pottageville Pavillion renovations are complete

King Township is happy to announce that the Pottageville Pavillion was recently opened to the public for reservations and recreational use.

Pottageville Pavilion, located in Pottageville Community Park, has become a staple for residents in the local community and surrounding area to gather and enjoy the on-site amenities.

In 2021 a full design was commissioned by the Township to have the Pavilion fully renovated to provided the public barrier-free access to the facility. The design has included new skylights and dormers, a new functional kitchen area, two spacious barrier-free restrooms and a fully renovated interior hall that extends to the outdoor covered patio area.

Take advantage of King's free battery recycling program

All batteries are sorted by type (alkaline, lithium, etc.) and recycled for their respective elements (metal, zinc, manganese, etc.). All standard single-use batteries are accepted, including AA, D, 9V, button cell, etc. Rechargeable batteries are not currently accepted.

Batteries contain heavy metals and other toxic chemicals, which mean they have traditionally been handled as toxic waste. Recycling these materials allows them to be reused or disposed of properly, which keeps them out of landfill. The Township's new battery recycling bins allow you to conveniently dispose of your used batteries, while doing your part to help protect our environment.

For safety purposes, please place leaking batteries in a sealed plastic bag, and cover the terminals of lithium batteries with tape before dropping them off in the bins.

  • King Heritage & Cultural Centre - 2920 King Road, King City
