It's funny he compares it with Toronto because there are some major differences in how it and Amsterdam are designed and laid out that make it work there but impossible in Toronto. Most of the residential streets in Toronto are very narrow and very long. So if you lived in the middle of a block that's a long ass haul to take your garbage to one of those things. Plus there really isn't room at either end of the blocks anyway. Plus a lot of the older blocks all have alleyways which is where garbage is picked up.
Toronto's a great example of a poorly designed city that was basically built on the fly and never accounted for future growth. In East York where I grew up they're all small post WW2 bungalows and the driveways in the houses are so small that they're pointless. So you have to park at the front of the house or on the street. Cool that Amsterdam can do that but it would be a huge amount of work and cost to do that here.
