Councillors to pursue rule forcing Ottawa festivals, events to have recycling plan

By Bridget Britneff, Global News Ottawa, May 15, 2018

Some councillors sitting on the city’s environment and climate protection committee want to make it mandatory for festivals and other special events hosted in Ottawa to provide recycling bins on their sites in time for summer 2019.

Right now there’s no law or rule that requires event organizers to implement any kind of a recycling plan. Some big events have gone ahead and done so of their own volition –— but River Ward Coun. Riley Brockington insists he visits many sites with only garbage cans on offer.
