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. #TOpoli

City council talks trash and awards new waste contract for Etobicoke… despite the rising cost of private collection

Private collection on the west side of the city now costs more per household than collection in east Toronto by city workers.

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?
