Consumers should be better informed on how to recycle their containers after use, he proposed, and there should be more recycle-receptacles available across the city — like the ones the city started piloting in the West End last summer.

Street receptacles here in Toronto accept recyclables, like single-use coffee cups, but I still see them tossed about everywhere.  I suppose one answer would be to ban them, and require anyone who wants a cup of coffee on the go to bring their own clay mug, but it would seem a bit insulting if we all had to do that because a few asshats need to lob their empty cup into a parking lot.

Proposal:  a $10,000 fine for littering, even a first offense, no exceptions.  Is the environment important enough?
