Frances Nunziata votes for privatized trash pickup

Frances Nunziata, the councillor for Weston, voted this week in favour of privatized garbage service in our area.

The initiative is a big part of Mayor Rob Ford’s vision for the city, but the measure passed only with significant concessions. Privatized collection, if given final approval, would start in the west end of the city, including in Weston, before being expanded.

Weston had private collection before amalgamation. The city took over when York was amalgamated into Toronto; de-privatizing garbage collection actually saved money–about $4 million.

Nunziata voted against the first round of privatization when she was mayor of York, according to Torontoist.
