Q11 - Will you support the introduction of a user pay system for curbside residual waste collection, where residents pay for the bags or containers that they put out for collection, according to the actual level of service that they use?

Brandon Russell

No. I don't for a couple of reasons. Having spoken to the people of Somerset ward

Stuart MacKay

No. I would need to see more data how this would impact low-income residents in Somerset Ward before making a decision on this sort of system. My concern would be adding an additional household expense (such as the purchase of registered garbage bags) to a low-income household already struggling.

Ariel Troster

Yes. This is a good idea, we need to divert as much waste as possible away from landfills.
