Local MPP Norm Miller thinks Ontario’s new Special Advisor on Recycling and Plastic Waste is a good fit.
David Lindsay has been tipped for the role.
Miller has long advocated for recycling, reducing plastic waste and holding the companies that produce waste responsible.
Ontario’s current waste diversion rates have been stalled at 30% for 15 years, meaning that 70% of our waste continues to go to landfill.
Miller has faith that Lindsay will work with Minister of Environment Rod Phillips to find a solution to hold producers responsible for waste they create.
