Council identified the need to review the City of Lacombe’s solid waste system in their 2018-2021 Strategic Plan.  The City’s solid waste system includes the collection of garbage, recycling, green waste, and the Trash to Treasure Week, Community Clean Up and Toxic E-waste Roundup events.

We are currently working with Tetra-Tech Canada Inc. to conduct a comprehensive review of the municipality’s solid waste system with the following goals:

  • To benchmark value for service against that of comparable municipalities,
  • To develop a long term plan for managing the City’s solid waste in a sustainable, fiscally responsible manner, and
  • To engage the public about the future of solid waste collection in Lacombe. 

Thank you for your feedback on the solid waste system survey! The survey is now closed.  We received over 600 responses and we will be reviewing them closely over the coming weeks.  The Solid Waste Review will be complete in the first quarter of 2020.
