STATUS

Engineering staff is preparing a survey of the commercial sector to determine their needs and requirements for commercial recycling and organics collection that will be circulated through the Chamber of Commerce.  Staff is also reviewing the equipment and staff resource requirements of the Solid Waste and Recycling Branch that would be needed to support expansion of the City's existing Commercial Recycling and Organics collection services. The Solid Waste Utility Budget, which Council passed in 2018, approves Engineering procuring additional collection equipment and recruiting an additional FTE, in order to support the growth and successful operation of the City's existing Commercial Recycling and Organics collection services.
