I understand that Meaford Council is evaluating a plan to gradually move our garbage bag tag system into a full cost recovery program ($4.50 per bag). Until such a time as everything is recyclable, ethically disposable, or more controllable by the end-user, it is important to leave the price as is ($3.00 per bag).
We know that there is a financial shortfall between bag tag revenues and the higher cost of the Miller Waste disposal service. Let’s continue to pay that difference through our taxes until such a time as manufacturers catch up with the residential sector with respect to waste reduction and diversion.
