Based on the Collection Service Review findings, the key consultant review recommendation is that WRS maintain the public-sector service delivery model for collections, provided regular review, assessment and performance reporting occur. Committee approved directing Administration to solicit feedback from the waste and recycling collection services industry regarding the 2018 Collection services review report and report back to the Utilities and Corporate Services Committee by Q2 2020 with findings.
