The City will hold a technical briefing about the new recommended Curbside Waste Diversion Policy on Thursday, May 4. Residents and media are welcome to attend this public meeting. 

City staff will provide information to Council members about proposed changes to Ottawa’s curbside garbage collection to reduce waste going to landfill, increase participation in recycling and green bin programs, and encourage more sustainable waste habits.  

Date: Thursday, May 4 
Time: 1 pm 
Location: Colonel By Room, Ottawa City Hall, 110 Laurier Avenue West 

The new recommended policy will be brought to the Environment and Climate Change Committee for consideration on June 5, and to City Council on June 14. 

This policy supports the ongoing development of the Solid Waste Master Plan, which will guide how we manage waste over the next 30 years in a socially, environmentally, and economically responsible manner.
