a) Bag Tag Program for Seasonal Residents (Deputy Mayor Moher)
Whereas residents with a mailing address beyond Douro-Dummer Township annually receive a 20 bag voucher for free drop off of waste at the transfer station;

And further that a number of these residents actually reside in Douro-Dummer and take advantage of the weekly township curbside pickup;

And whereas we need to continue to do everything possible to reduce the waste going to landfill;

Be it resolved that staff do whatever is reasonably necessary to review the list of residents receiving the annual 20 bag waste voucher and for staff to make such recommendations such as:

• Eliminate those residents now living in the township from receiving annual future 20 bag vouchers.
• Eliminate the voucher program in total except for resident owners located on islands.
• Eliminate the program in total
