“We’re definitely behind most cities in this world when it comes to making money on our garbage or turning garbage into money, and I look forward to seeing the report come forward.”

Asked if he supported burning refuse, Ford said he was in favour of “some sort of burning methodology.”
‘Turn that garbage into money’

“You can call it gasification, incineration, I’m not quite sure — the professionals can give us that advice,” he said.

Ford added: “When you see truckloads of garbage going down the 401, it’s like truckloads of $100 bills, and we have to turn that garbage into money.”

He also said that “70 per cent of the world already has some sort of method in place to turn their garbage into energy.”

Sounds good, put the incinertor in Etobicoke!
