Using recycled plastic lumber instead of treated lumber

We manufacture plastic lumber out of post consumer plastic generated from recycling programs in Alberta. Unlike other recycled products our goal is to utilize less desirable items like plastic bags, Tide containers etc. These items tend to end up in the landfill as there is a very limited market for the product. We have decided to change that we manufacture linear lumber, fence posts and and parking curbs in effort to... more »

Plastic Recycling Machine

To Whom It May Concern: Recently I was sent an email regarding a plastic recycling machine developed in Japan. On checking a little further, it was noted that the machine cost approximately $200,000. I wondered if you or any of the council members or appropriate city staff in the recycling division were aware of this machine and whether it or a larger version of it would be feasible for use here in Calgary. I will... more »

Daylighting Creeks and urban wetlands

I'd like to see more natural stormwater management beyond just creating giant storm water ponds in new communities. I think the City needs to exploit natural streams and creeks that may have been undermined by construction in the past... It's happening everywhere else and creates a more resilient storm system. We need to bring water back into the city.

Dump the Olympics, save the province with renewable energy.

Calgary should instead of investing in an Olympic bid, and a potential Olympics that will cost this city billions of dollars, partially subsidize the construction of an electric car factory, solar panel factory and wind mill factory. If we do this, the rest of Canada can buy Canadian made electric vehicles, Canadian made solar panels and Canadian made wind mills. Renewable energy will take over the world and Alberta... more »

non smoking lines

hello I have a great idea on what to do on the smoking areas outside of all of Calgary businesses. my idea is to paint a curved line ( yellow ) around every business entrance to indicate where smoking can be done without seeming rude. the sign on the door would say: "If you have to smoke, please stand beyond the yoke (yellow line)" this is self explanatory and with the word "please" makes the law not seem so demanding.... more »

Restructuring our waste removal system to save us $$$

I believe the following collective actions will improve the city's efficiency and cost-effectiveness for waste removal: a. Get rid of the bins. Yes, the black, blue, and green bins. Not only will this save resident’s money when these bins need to be replaced, but they will also discourage residents (or passer-by’s) from carelessly placing waste/organic/recyclables into the inappropriate bins because it is not a monitored... more »

Opt-in bin collection programs (black, blue, green)

Forcing homeowners to pay for bin collection they don't use is a waste of time and money. Many Calgarians are capable of disposing their own garbage, recyclables and compost, and shouldn't be forced to pay into a subscription service they don't use. Naturally, any combination (or all) of these programs should continue to be available for any homeowner who wishes to opt-in. This change will reduce the amount of street... more »

The Key of Solving Traffic Delay in Rush HR on Deerfoot NE

In afternoon rush hour time, traffic northbound Deerfoot roughly between 32nd Av and Beddington Tr is always incredible busy. That is probably caused by the heavy traffic volume attempting to merge into Deerfoot Tr via 32, McKnight, and 64 exits. Following the expansion of the city and growth of Airdrie, Crossfield, etc, more and more people are living in the far north side of the city who are going to take Deerfoot or... more »

De-bottlenecking the Deerfoot / Southland Dr. Interchange

Now that Lafarge Canada has moved out of their location at the end of Anderson Rd SE, a simple ramp off Deerfoot Tr. northbound to join the Anderson Rd & Bow Bottom Trail would eliminate the current bottleneck on Deerfoot Rd further north at the Southland exit.

 

This simple & inexpensive idea would greatly improve traffic flow on Deerfoot every morning rush hour, and make that intersection much safer.
