At the Public Works & Infrastructure Cte Meeting On Sept. 22, City Staff summarizes public input from summer forums and surveys. The public clearly chose environmental concerns as the top priority for assessing waste options.
Councillors are inspired by 3 deputations:
- TEA's Waste Campaigner, Emily Alfred shows that we can dramatically reduce our waste using Toronto's existing waste system.
- Reps from a high rise condo explain how they have dramatically reduced waste, including food waste.
- The Repair Cafe reports on monthly meets where volunteer "fixers" help Toronto residents repair household goods
The recommendations of the committee go forward to the September 30 City Council meeting.
