Clive Doucet would reinstate weekly garbage pickup during the summer months if he was elected mayor, he announced at a mayoral debate in rural south Ottawa Tuesday night.

Doucet said he's been hearing from residents that their garbage is too stinky in summer and that using the green bin can be difficult for some.

"I think the summer garbage is a real problem. I think I would support June, July, August weekly garbage pick up," he said during the debate.
