We're constantly highlighting NarCity Ottawa's amusing headlines but CTV Ottawa has won the week: The City of Ottawa wants to hear your garbage opinions.
And it has the benefit of being true! The City really does want to hear about how its citizens handle solid waste, recycling, and food waste now and in the future. We're running out of room at the landfill, building a new landfill is a pandora's box, and we all want to be waste zero anyway.
We also ask you to take note of how the City is handling this: a survey (in 10 languages) availble for two months, eight public information sessions, and a special invitation to young persons, older adults, racialized residents, new immigrants, or members of the 2SLGBTQQIA+ community to email the City for a personal experience.
PLUS they have set up a phone number – 613-580-2424 ext. 25550 – to complete the survey by phone if you don't have a computer.
Compare this to most issues the City asks for public input: sometimes a online survey, and most often, an unpersonalized email address. The City wants public input on your garbage issues. On other issues, your opinion may be just garbage.
Click here for the survey in the language of your choice.
We'll see you tomorrow – Martha and Darren
