This ban should have happened a long time ago. However the education about how to recycle needs to be stepped up particularly in Peel, where a large number of residents don’t sort their waste or do it incorrectly. Walk down a street where South Asians live and you will see the largest “garbage” cans. The green bins will be absent because sorting waste is too bothersome! We could charge for garbage but then it would end up in the local parks!
