Improve solid waste, recycling, and brush/bulky waste collection efficiency.
As the city continues to grow and waste generation and recycling patterns change, the City should on an annual basis assess and modify service frequency, number of trips and route optimization. The City will evaluate benchmarks for service frequency and its collection routes to improve efficiency and reduce the number of trips required. As Dallas’ transportation system becomes more congested, it may also be necessary to add transfer stations. The use of these facilities will reduce the number of miles driven by collection vehicles by consolidating waste streams into larger transfer vehicles.
