Ottawa trash collection debate begins
#1 Jan 13, 2011
It seems totally reasonable to begin to do more for our environment by keeping as much as possible out of landfill. We need to begin to think about how we shop with the least wrap possible, how we use and reuse and how we dispose. We have all become to comfortable with just pitching everything out without regard to what happens to these products down the road.
The main problem with going to bi-weekly garbage pick-up seems to be the smell of diapers and sanitary products. Perhaps it should all go to green bin Orgaworld. Whether or not that happens we can all do more to minimize smell, rodents and animals etc. In the days when we washed cloth diapers, some still do, we used diaper liners or even Kleenex and it all dropped easily into the toilet and flushed away. We sure didn't throw it all into the laundry! Pet feces is supposed to go into the toilet as well. I hope everyone can eventually find better ways to reduce, reuse and recycle in an environmentally safe way for future generations.
