Solid Waste Task Force

City Manager Michael Goodrum appointed a 17-member Solid Waste Task Force to develop the recommendations for the future of solid waste and recycling in Sugar Land. The Solid Waste Task Force discussed many elements of solid waste and recycling, including the City’s current level of service, possible service modifications for the future, and different options related to customer service, educational outreach, financial acceptability, and environmental protection.

One step in the process was gathering resident feedback. This step included the execution of a statistically-valid community wide survey to ensure that Sugar Land's solid waste program aligned with community expectations. Residents also had the opportunity to participate in an Online Town Hall to provide additional feedback to the Solid Waste Task Force. The recommendations were submitted to the City Council following completion of the task force's work. 

Duties and Responsibilities

The Solid Waste Task Force was responsible for the following:

  • Participating in round-table discussions regarding the development, review and prioritization of residential solid waste program goals; 
  • Utilizing the identified goals to determine the strategies (i.e. services) that best met those goals; and 
  • Making a recommendation regarding the residential service levels that should be utilized in the city’s solid waste contract.

Should you have any questions, please call 311 or 281-275-2900.
