City approves waste deal with GFL. But while public/private collection costs almost exactly the same, council didn't get information on how the two compare when it comes to waste diversion. We'll get that data in January. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/toronto-waste-collection-deal-1.6247188 #TOpoli

City council talks trash and awards new waste contract for Etobicoke… despite the rising cost of private collection https://toronto.citynews.ca/video/2021/11/12/private-garbage-collection-continues-in-toronto-despite-rising-costs/

Private collection on the west side of the city now costs more per household than collection in east Toronto by city workers. http://torstar.co/YrOt50GIUIj

At today’s Infrastructure & Environment Committee meeting, Matt Keliher, GM of Solid Waste, confirms that the cost of the city’s contracted-out garbage collection in the west side of the city is now about equal to the cost of the in-house collection on the east side.

City staff once claimed we could save $11.5M/year by contracting out garbage pickup. Now Toronto is paying same amount for private pickup as it does for in-house. Since there's no savings then why are staff recommending more privatized pickup in Etobicoke?
