I shot this clip on a cool August evening in 2013 after being surprised to find the bin absolutely foaming over with maggots. It wasn't even full of composting matter. I'm quite used to the little critters and I haven't got much against them, per se, but tonight's chance encounter reached a new height of baseness. You see, the city of Ottawa has a hard time understanding why people are so reluctant to get on board with their Green Bin program. Well, this video, and the sounds of the overflowing maggot orgy if you can hear them clicking, should put things into perspective. Why indeed!?! Maggots to me: no big deal. Maggots to the average fastidious homemaker: over the top horrific - a complete showstopper. I know plenty of people who simply refuse to use the Green Bin and it's hurting the City's program. They really should distribute free anti-maggot chemical pucks, if such a thing exists. (Hey, entrepreneurs: cut me in for 5 cents on every puck you sell if this idea takes off - create a toilet mint type puck which evaporates "maggot suppression fumes" but won't damage people, pets or the environment. Make it so it can be stuck to the inside of the bin's lid and last through the summer. You could make a mint!) If you could save Ottawa from the scourge of the maggot, you'd probably get your own keys to the city! Good luck. More vids if I get the chance.
