FINAL REPORT Exclusive Commercial and Multifamily Solid Waste Franchise Hauling System Implementation Plan Executive Summary
The City’s Bureau of Sanitation was directed by
the City Council on November 14, 2012, to proceed with the development of an implementation plan for the Exclusive Commercial and Multifamily Solid Waste Franchise system, including the consideration of 23 items in the adopted Energy and Environment/Ad Hoc on Waste Reduction and Recycling joint committee report. Sanitation prepared a series of preliminary reports, which were discussed at length in additional joint EE/Ad Hoc WRR Committee meetings. Information was gathered and refined through research, information requests, and public meetings. A critical element for the Final Report is consideration of Goals for the Exclusive Franchise system. These goals mirror many of the needs expressed by the stakeholders, including the waste haulers, environmental organizations, business groups, labor groups, and community groups. These 10 goals encompass the major elements of the program, and frame the recommendations that Sanitation is presenting for consideration of the City Council.
