Dog waste and plastic bags would be allowed in green bins by mid-2019 under a proposed alteration to city’s contract with Orgaworld, while stopping taxpayer money from being thrown away under the deal.

The city reveals the proposal in a lengthy report to council published Monday night, raising the possibility of finally ending years of disputes with the company and potentially making the green bin a more popular choice for families who have turned their noses to recycling organic waste.
