September – Councillor Sean Chu’s Report


Dear Ward 4 Residents,

Make a difference, one straw at a time

Did you know? Plastic straws and cutlery can’t be recycled in the blue cart. These small plastic items are too small to be sorted at the recycling facility and end up contaminating the proper recyclables instead.

Here are a few tips to follow:

  • Unless you actually need a plastic straw or cutlery don’t take one.
  • Wash and reuse plastic straws and cutlery a few times before disposing in the garbage.
  • Keep reusable cutlery on hand so you’ll always have something to use.

If you’re not sure what to do with an item, find the answer on the online search tool at

Voting is an important responsibility for every Canadian. It is how we shape our communities and choose which leaders will represent us.
