City hall blog: Heat will be on households to recycle if city changes garbage rules

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, March 27, 2018

It’s becoming more difficult for anyone around city hall to deny that the rules for garbage pickup will change in the coming years.

“At this point, nothing is ruled out, nothing is ruled in,” Coun. David Chernushenko, the environment chair on council, said this week.

“I think with the lay of the land changing so dramatically provincially, I think we’ll want to look at everything from clear bags to tags to a very, very long list, but no one should read into that that the city or council wants to pick any one of those, but rather what’s the most effective tool to get us to the diversion targets that we want and meet our greenhouse gas emission targets as well?”
