▪️The City is considering changing the way it charges for garbage and wants your opinion. Door #1: Households get a set number of bags and must purchase extra ones, while recycling and organics would remain free. Door #2: Households have a set number of bags and nothing above that will be collected at any price. Door #3: All garbage is in plastic bags, and recycling and organics would not be allowed in those bags. And as you know, the City is taking this seriously because they have made a form. [City of Ottawa
