Why this petition matters

Started by Sustainable Merrickville-Wolford - A Potluck Action Group

There is a lot of interest on how to reduce our own ecological footprint, reduce what we are putting in landfills, reduce demand for petroleum-based plastics, and reduce the emissions generated from our landfill sites. Many of the solutions are related to reducing our waste. 

The residents and business owners of Merrickville-Wolford have been approaching us with concerns about the reduced options for recycling and waste diversion in our municipality. We are aware that at least two of our neighbouring counties, Montague and North Grenville, have recently changed contractors to Emterra Environmental, who accept a significantly broader array of items, including black plastic and cartons.

We have initiated this petition to ask the Merrickville-Wolford Council to explore ways to expand our recycling and waste diversion program for our municipality.

Please join us in asking Council to make waste diversion and management a priority for Merrickville-Wolford.

We invite you to learn more about other ways to take action - we need everyone involved in creating a sustainable future. Find us at www.sustainablemw.org 

Thank you!
