Cost and Policy Analysis of Privatization of Solid Waste Collection Operations

Project Descriptions:

In 2013, we analyzed the operating costs of the City’s solid waste collection operations. Our work included segregating the City’s operating costs between those that would be avoided by contracting with a private hauler vs. those that would continue to be borne by the City. We also compared the City’s route productivity to that of private haulers. We prepared a report, and presented our findings to the City Council’s solid waste subcommittee.
