Q10 - In addition to improving recycling, will you support ambitiously collecting green bin waste in multi-residential buildings and curbside, ensuring Ottawa avoids replacing our landfill site with either a new landfill or an incinerator anytime soon?

Miranda Gray

Yes. I was part of the public consultations for the multi-residential site Solid Waste Master Planning process. I support revising the property standards for new buildings to a higher standard as soon as possible. We will need several different models for existing residences. In older apartment buildings, the garbage chute encourages residents to put all items in the same bin. These units will take a lot more engagement to change the culture around waste. Other buildings have so little space for waste, they can’t support a multi-bin collection. We will need site visits to work our unique solutions for these types of buildings. In townhome complexes, like mine, the issue is waste is anonymous so folks who don’t sort properly are untraceable. Here we need to nudge people in the right direction using social engineering and by linking behaviour to charges.
