(Mar. 26/14) Restaurants Canada met with Mayor Mike Savage to discuss our members’ concerns with potential increased solid waste costs. We explained that shipping institutional, commercial and industrial (ICI) waste outside Halifax Regional Municipality (HRM) would allow for cheaper processing while complying with the province’s strict rules. Restaurants Canada also discussed our concerns with a tip fee increase.
We have asked other business organizations to ally with us. We continue to urge restaurateurs to contact their Councillors.
