How was the Solid Waste Task Force involved with the new contract?

In June 2021, 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, with the existing Exclusive Solid Waste and Recycling Franchise Agreement expiring in March 2023. The Solid Waste Task Force developed service level and program development recommendations based on public surveys and online town halls. These recommendations were reviewed by City Council and incorporated in the City’s request for proposals.
