Referred to a future meeting of the Waste Management Committee 2012-396

Councillor Palleschi stated that residents often complain of litter blowing out of blue boxes on windy days. He sought clarification as to when a Regional policy will be implemented that would allow for blue box covers.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, responded that the Waste Management Committee dealt with the issue in the past and resolved that mandating blue box covers (lids or nets) was not the preferred option. He stated that as part of the bi-weekly pilot project, the wards of Councillors Paterak and Sprovieri will be using larger carts with lids and he undertook to report back to Council on the effectiveness and results of the pilot project.

Dan Labrecque stated that the Waste Management Committee will review the implications of utilizing clear bags in lieu of blue boxes and will report back to Regional Council later this year.
