The Standing Policy Committee on Utilities and Environment accepted the report on tag-a-bag for information yesterday.
The proposal suggests implementing a tag-a-bag program in 2012 after the roll out of black cart automated garbage collection. The estimated cost would be about $2 per tag for bags that don’t fit in the carts. A black cart will hold about four standard sized garbage bags.
