Producers To Pay For Blue Box Collections

Changes are coming for the way blue box items are collected. Jack Ballinger, Uxbridge's representative on Durham Region Council, says the Region of Durham is waiting for more word from the Province on how its Waste Free Ontario Act will effect blue box pick-up. The Act among other things shifts the cost of the Blue Box program from municipal taxpayers to producers. Councilor Ballinger says that leaves a lot of questions unanswered. The Region is also currently doing a cost analysis of producing gas for vehicles and power using food waste similar to systems that are in place in Europe.
