    Whatever Option's adopted – back lanes must be used, not streets: I live in the Luxton Neighbourhood and I sincerely hope that whatever system is put in place the back lane is used – that's one of the purposes they're there!. Following the inception of the blue boxes in Luxton the front street became the pick up point (the blue box guys at that time zig zagged across the street picking up the boxes – which they don't any more.) Not every house has a cut through the snow bank to the kerb. Bins are balanced on snow banks; retrieving the empty bin can be a challenge. Not having easy access to put out the blue box is a deterrent to using it. Blue boxes on the street significantly increase the amount of litter.

    If the bin option is adopted, and the front street is used, these bins will sit on the boulevard week after week – just drive along Aberdeen west of Main and you'll see the unsightly black wheeled bins lined up at the kerb 24/7. Would we want out city to look like a perpetual garbage collection?

    I lived in Edmonton over 30 years ago and they had depots that you could bring glass, plastics,etc. and receive money back. When I was young we could return bottles back to the grocery stores for our deposits back.We have gone backwards. Make small depots around the city and you'll see a cleaner Winnipeg. People will pick up that bottle so they can get the deposit back.

    Make it easy to what is right. Once people figure out a convenient way to do it wrong, changing their behaviour later will be a challenge.

    Disposing of special items needs to be easier. If I cannot put empty paint cans, used electronics, etc. in the recycle box or return them to the place I bought them, they will end up in the garbage. Last time I tried recycling electronics, it was an ordeal driving to one of the few depots that were open when I was available.
