Solid Waste Commercial Collection
Council received as information a presentation from Administration regarding three different options for the collection of solid waste for large bin customers and construction material in Lacombe.
The presentation highlighted the differences between the utility based model currently used for all solid waste in the community, a regulated alternative that removes the city from administration of solid waste for larger bins and construction waste, and a third alternative that removes the City from construction waste collection only.
