Waste reduction strategies

Take our single-use items survey between November 7 and January 3.

The Government of Canada is banning six categories of harmful single-use plastics including checkout bags, cutlery, and foodservice ware made from or containing problematic plastics (e.g. polylactic acid, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene foam, oxo-degradable plastic, and black plastic made with carbon black), ring carriers used for bottles and cans, stir sticks and straws. Learn more about the City of Guelph bylaw, our next steps and the new federal regulations.

To further our efforts to reduce waste as actions coming from our Solid Waste Management Master Plan we are exploring options for fees for single-use beverage cups and reusable shopping bags. We would like to understand how Guelph residents and businesses feel about the potential fees. Please take our survey below and let us know.

The feedback from businesses and the community will be considered and we will present a summary to Council in April 2023 for a decision.
