The best way to reduce our litter problem is to produce less waste. [See Waste Management].
The second-best way is to ensure that litter is collected before it starts blowing. Automated garbage collection should help reduce litter being blown from private garbages.
I believe another source of our litter problem may be a shortage of waste bins in some pedestrian areas, particularly during events like the Canada 150 celebrations. The City should consider erecting some of these bins itself. It should also examine whether private businesses that offer disposable containers have a role in providing more waste bins on their private land.
