As our population grows the amount of waste we are generating increases and changes. The current landfill has a lifespan of 40 years and the construction of a new landfill would be costly.
Where are we now?
The amount of waste each resident sends to the landfill is decreasing.
|Residential Garbage Collection (kg/capita)*||340||323||308||284||269||265||252||242||239||226|
*Note: single-family and multi-unit residential sources make up the majority of waste collected by City trucks; however, some commercial collections are combined with collections from multi-unit residential properties.
