The City of Ottawa is engaging on options for the Solid Waste Master Plan and garbage collection in up first. Between now and September 12, the City is looking for your input on three options to divert more garbage:
Partial pay-as-you throw: Households would be allowed to place a set number of garbage items out for collection. Households with more than this limit would purchase garbage tags for each additional item. Recycling, organics, and leaf and yard waste would still be picked up without any tags and with no limits.
Reduced item limits: Households would set out a reduced number of garbage items for collection. Anything above the limit would not be collected.
Clear garbage bags with recycling and organics bans: Households would set out their garbage in clear bags. Recyclables and organic waste would not be permitted in the garbage.
