Yes. In my role as Vice Chair of Environment Committee I have pushed for faster conversion of multi-residential buildings into the organic waste stream. This includes supporting a focus group of residents and building owners to address challenges with converting spaces within existing buildings to accommodate waste storage and curbside collection. We have the capacity to reduce waste at the source by making it easier and more convenient to compost. Considering the cost and environmental effects of opening a new landfill or burning waste, it is imperative that we do so.
Yes. Public education is obviously necessary to make certain the public correctly puts their waste in the proper bin.
