Chelsie OSTREGA a lancé cette pétition adressée à City of Westmount

Problem : There are no recycling bins at local Westmount shops and restaurants because the city of Westmount refuses to pick up the plastic.

Solution: Sign this petition to get the city of Westmount to pick up all plastic and implement on-street recycling. 

Personal Story: I frequently go for lunch in the city of Westmount in Montreal. The other day I was out for lunch with my mom and we ordered salads that came in plastic bowls. After I was finished, I kindly asked where the recycling bin was. The woman responded by saying they did not "do" recycling. With a tone of frustration in my voice, I refuted back "why not?" She said it actually wasn’t the restaurants fault because the city just doesn't come by to collect it.

I could not believe it. it's 2019 and there is no recycling in such an affluent area?

The amount of plastic that gets thrown into the garbage seriously troubles me because it is so easily preventable. I had to do something about it. 

The city of Westmount says: "Recycling collection is carried out on Wednesdays for Westmount. Residents can use a blue box or blue recycling, plastic recycling bags for the collection. Recyclable material in any other type of container will not be collected"

The problem is that this service is not offered to the commercial sector. Instead, Westmount collects cardboard and paper ONLY. For some reason they just don't include plastic...Instead, they encourage shop owners to drop off their plastic at a separate site. 

PLEASE sign this petition to help sustain this beautiful planet.
