Recently, the City of Manteca selected MuniEnvironmental to conduct a study of the City’s solid waste collection service. MuniEnvironmental, with its expertise in the solid waste industry, will analyze the efficiency of the City’s collection service and offer recommendations for improvements.
“Managing a collection service is demanding and highly complex,” says MuniEnvironmental CEO and Principal Consultant Jeff Duhamel. “It is essential for municipalities to assess their operations to ensure they have an efficient system in place. The City of Manteca has positioned itself for success by choosing to analyze its solid waste collection service.”
MuniEnvironmental will review the City’s residential and commercial collection routes including all solid waste, green waste, recycling and bulky item/special collection routes. The City’s transfer and disposal operations for solid waste, recyclables, green waste and food waste also will be reviewed.
“MuniEnvironmental understands the nuances of the solid waste industry,” adds Duhamel. “We are pleased to assist the City of Manteca in its efforts to improve its collection service, and we applaud the City for their decision to take this type of proactive measure.”
As part of the study, MuniEnvironmental will hold several stakeholder meetings with the City’s team including solid waste operations staff, route supervisors and drivers. Additionally, MuniEnvironmental will review the City’s solid waste master plan, review a proposed recycling contract and determine the feasibility of constructing a city transfer station. The study is to be completed in June 2018.
