Yes. I have been calling for this for at least 5 years, support what staff are currently doing and consistently told them this needs to progress faster.
Yes. Solid waste contributes to 9% of Ottawa’s greenhouse gas emissions, not to mention the environmental destruction that a new landfill or incinerator would cause. If elected I would bring secure waste, recycling, and compost containers to all city parks, as well as to all multi-unit buildings and expand it to institutional uses like schools and restaurants.
I would also support small composting projects to get residents familiar with the land and connected to soil-building.
