Report: Region of Niagara 2020 Waste Collection Contract
At Tuesday's meeting, Council passed four motions regarding the Region's proposed changes to our collection service:
1. That Niagara Falls City Council is not in favour of every other week waste collection. City Council requests the Region to maintain waste collection service at the current level, with weekly collection of waste, recycling and organic bin matter, and same number of bags/containers collected, for residential properties (low density residential 1-6 units) and Industrial/Commercial/Industrial-Mixed Uses outside and inside Designated Business Areas.
2. That City Council requests that the Region collect pricing on maintaining the existing Multi-Residential (greater than 6 units) enhanced garbage collection.
3. That City Council request the Region to collect pricing on enhanced services for Public Space recycling, City litter receptacles in Designated Business Areas, and for 7-day-a-week collection from mid-May to mid-October in Designated Business Areas.
4. That City Council is in favour of 4 large items per residential unit, per collection, and of maintaining the appliance and scrap metal collection, but not in favour of the mandatory use of clear plastic bags.
