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?

Jeff Leiper

Yes. I support this idea but want to qualify it as support for charging only for excess garbage. It would penalize low-income households disproportionately if all garbage carried a user fee —user fees are regressive. I would support having a base level of free pickup that reflects what truly cannot be recycled or diverted into the green bins, and charge for exceeding this.
