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?

Laine Johnson

Yes. Without a doubt, it is in the best interest of the City of Ottawa to maximize the life of our existing landfill. To do this, we need to incentivize diversion to organic and recycling bins. As we already pay a portion of our property taxes towards waste management, I would be interested in exploring a cost-sharing model whereby you get a certain number of bags under the existing plan and a user-pay system for any number of bags above that limit. I am interested in better understanding the implementation of such a system across multi-unit residences and condo complexes, which often use common dumpsters.

No. People are paying so much in taxes, they need a break from spending left and right.
