You could soon be allowed fewer garbage bags curbside.
Halifax regional council passed a motion yesterday to, in principle, amend the bylaw for garbage collection in hopes it will lead to more recycling and composting. This would mean a reduction in the number of bags for weekly pickup to four from six.
The last garbage bag limit drop was to six from 10 three years ago. The municipality says a recent waste audit shows 30 per cent of garbage picked up curbside should be composted or recycled. The number jumps to 50 per cent for apartments and businesses. The public will have a chance to weigh in on any changes before a final vote is taken, an HRM release says.
