GREEN BINS: Plastic bags, dog feces okay as of July 2

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Sun, June 14, 2019

Ottawa residents can start tossing plastic bags and dog feces in their green bins on July 2, the city says.

Council voted in March 2018 to allow plastics and dog feces in the green bin in a renegotiated deal with Renewi, the organics plant operator, to resolve outstanding contract disputes.

The city’s auditor general discovered municipal taxpayers were overpaying to send organics to the Renewi plant (formerly the Orgaworld plant).
