With regards to your question relating to green box collection, I think there's been several stories in the Spec where they have said that there's too much waste being collected, not enough space to keep it until it completely decomposes, and that some was being shipped off to landfills.

Again, it's a case of Hamilton politicians putting the cart before the horse - we want to get rid of waste by simply saying so, but not giving the taxpayers alternatives to deal with it, aside from taxing us twice (1 bag to the curb, the rest to the dump, so you're paying twice for garbage removal).

People are creatures of habit. Those habits don't change just because the City says so. We need to ease into something like this, make sure all the support structure is in place, and then go forward.
