Waste Management has been penalized more than $200,000 for failing to live up to its garbage collection contract in Ottawa's west end, city councillors on the environment committee heard Tuesday.

Residents of Kanata, Stittsville, West Carleton and Bay ward have been plagued with spotty trash pickup since April.

The company had blamed a fire that destroyed several of its trucks, but is now reporting curbside collection is back on track.
