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?

Bina Shah

Yes. I will 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.  This incentivizes our community members to rethink waste and will help to divert waste from our landfill which will help to extend its life.

Rouba Fattal

No. This may result in people trying to dodge fees, and dump their trash in other places. I think having a more comprehensive and easy to use recycling program will be an easier solution to this, rather than using a pay-as-you-use program. Guelph's waste management strategy is one example we can look at for guidance. 

Erin Coffin

Yes. As long as it is reasonable, but I’d like to see a more fulsome proposal to understand the scope and limitations as well as the oversight and such.

Mike Dawson

No. It is totally unreasonable to put the primary burden on households (particularly large families) when they have little or NO influence on the packaging of the food and or other staples they are buying.
