Consultation on Single Use Plastics

Have your say on how to reduce single-use and takeaway items in the City of Toronto. Take the online survey today !


A single-use or takeaway item is any product designed for a single use after which it is disposed of in the garbage, Blue Bin (recycling) or Green Bin (organics). Typically, these products are not designed for durability or reuse. Examples include checkout bags and beverage cups.


Your feedback will help to inform a report that will be considered by the Infrastructure and Environment Committee later this spring. This report will present the final proposed Single-Use and Takeaway Items Reduction Strategy Stage 2 mandatory measures (e.g., a fee or "ask-first/by-request" bylaw), additional items to be addressed through the strategy, and timelines.


You can also participate in one of the virtual consultation meetings. Register today using the links below.
