MOTION

The following motion was put forward by Commissioner Woodcock,

WHEREAS the Vancouver Park Board is committed to protecting the natural environment by promoting and adhering to principles of urban sustainability which include identifying recyclable materials and pursuing opportunities to minimize disposal of such materials in landfills;

WHEREAS park users often throw recyclable cans and bottles into garbage cans in the majority of Vancouver's 221 parks where there are no recycling receptacles available;

WHEREAS there are no recycling receptacles in the vast majority of Vancouver's parks;

WHEREAS people scavenge through garbage to locate recylables, which is unsanitary and a potential health hazard to them;

WHEREAS the City of Vancouver's installation of recycling racks to litter cans throughout the city and subsequent 2006 litter can audit report has proven this to be a successful program, encouraging the public to leave their recyclable cans and bottles while people who collect the containers for refunds have easier access;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT Park Board staff be directed to review and report to the Planning Committee the feasibility of attaching recyclable racks to garbage cans throughout the City's park system.
