Did the City Council change the City's diversion rate goal?
Yes, on Feb. 21, 2017, the City Council adopted a Solid Waste Reduction, Diversion and Recycling Master Plan with a new diversion rate goal. The Mayor and staff agreed to try to set a more attainable goal than the 80% rate that was set by City Council in 2013. Staff recommended that we set a new goal, doubling where we are today, with a 40% diversion rate as the new target. The goal is to move from 20-30% diversion between 2017 - 2022 and 30-40% diversion between 2022-2027.
