I'm in Dufferin County in Ontario and as of June 1st we have a new garbage pick up provider. One of the changes that they are implementing is that garbage bags have to be see through/clear. It's to make people recycle more because if you don't recycle and throw out recyclables in your garbage bag they won't pick up your garbage.
Well it seems a lot of people are up in arms about this as they are concerned about privacy. I must admit I am not 100% happy about the idea of putting "personal" items in a bag for the world to see. We are allowed a "privacy bag" the size of one grocery store bag to put those "personal" items in.
For us I generally only put out one bag of garbage a week, as I do recycle as much as possible. So I do see the benefit of this. Do feel sorry for the garbage men having to "look" at what is in garbage bags though!!
Would it bother you to have clear garbage bags?
