CCOC hosted the launch of the City of Ottawa's new recycling bag initiative at our 464 Metcalfe property on September 2, 2015.
Mayor Jim Watson and City Councillor David Chernushenko (Capital Ward) announced the City's new program which will make recycling bags available to apartment buildings and other multi-residential buildings. We're excited to see recycling becoming more accessible for everyone.
We've been using our own recycling bags since 2008, with great feedback and results from tenants. In fact, our Beaver Barracks properties have some of the highest waste diversion rates in the city of Ottawa! These bags allow tenants to quickly and easily bring their recyclables down to a communal garbage room and properly dispose of them.
