A newly released survey shows most Ottawa shoppers want a ban on single-use plastics.

93 per cent of respondents said they were in favour of the ban to reduce waste.

The survey is in response to the Ford governments call for feedback on how to tackle Ontario's waste problem.

The company behind the survey, terra20, plans to present its findings to the Minister of Environment on Friday.

terra20 President and Co-founder, Bill Stewart said in a release that, "It was evident in their responses that Ottawa residents are frustrated by the amount of garbage going to landfill and specifically, how much of the Blue Bin is ending up in a landfill."
