The application deadline for the city of Sugar Land’s Solid Waste Task Force has been extended to 11:59 p.m. June 16th.

The City of Sugar Land is creating a resident task force to develop recommendations for the future of solid waste and recycling in Sugar Land. 

The task force will be appointed by City Manager Michael W. Goodrum and will meet twice a month from 6-8 p.m. through November. Recommendations will focus on future residential service levels based on extensive review and citizen feedback. 

Part of the process will also include the development of a statistically-valid community wide survey to ensure Sugar Land’s solid waste program aligns with community expectations. Recommendations will be submitted to City Council following completion of the task force’s work.

  • Make a recommendation regarding the residential service levels that should be utilized in the city’s next solid waste contract. 

Applications may be submitted at through June 13, and task force selections are expected by the end of June. Applicants must be residents of the city.
