To provide increased opportunities to keep as much waste as possible out of the landfill, we will be looking at ways to help residents dispose of items that should not go in the garbage, or that could be collected and recycled through additional programs. Some residents face challenges with bringing their household chemicals, large items (for example, furniture) and electronic waste (for example, cell phones) to drop-off locations, such as Eco Stations.
This winter, we are seeking input on:
Eco Station hours and days of operation
Options for setting up small community drop-off locations (what items are accepted, and what types of locations should be considered)
How the City can support access to drop-off locations for tenants without vehicles, and with mobility concerns
We would like your input on what opportunities, communication methods and resources would you like to have available to you and how you think the City should get people on board and ensure compliance with the changes.
