Council identified the need to review the City of Lacombe’s solid waste system in their 2018-2021 Strategic Plan. The City’s solid waste system includes the collection of garbage, recycling, and green waste, as well as the Trash to Treasure Week, Community Clean Up, and Toxic E-waste Roundup events.
The City worked with Tetra-Tech Canada Inc. to conduct a comprehensive review of the municipality’s solid waste system with the following goals:
- To benchmark value for service against that of comparable municipalities
- To develop a long term plan for managing the City’s solid waste in a sustainable, fiscally responsible manner
- To engage the public about the future of solid waste collection in Lacombe
