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?

Riley Brockington

No. If the garbage levy remains on the tax bill, I will not support an additional user pay fee.

Ethan Sabourin

Yes. While I do not want to put further economic strain on Ottawa’s low-income populations, we do need to explore more options to incentivise the use of alternative waste systems, such as recycling and composting. As such, I would support the implementation of a user pay system for additional waste over a predetermined threshold. This must be guarded by strong equity policies, considering factors like family size. We also need containers which are protected from the weather and from animals. 

Alex Dugal 

Yes. Oh well developed and implemented education an incentive program will help us reduce overall city waste by residence
