Sanitation Modernization Advisory Committee Releases Final Report

Bloomington, Ind. - In response to Mayor John Hamilton's request, the Sanitation Modernization Advisory Committee has released its final report. After several months of meetings and discussions where several sanitation options were evaluated, the report details the recommendations from the Committee.

The committee has recommended that the City continue to move forward seeking the necessary approvals from the City of Bloomington Utilities Service Board and the City of Bloomington Common Council. If the implementation is approved, an automated service delivery model at the Sanitation Division would include automated collection, volume-based pricing, wheeled carts for each household and weekly single stream recycling. Trash stickers would no longer be required if the recommendations are adopted.

"I thank the Sanitation Modernization Advisory Committee for the many hours of study and discussion that went into this report. This effort will impact almost every resident of Bloomington, so it's important that we get it right," commented Mayor John Hamilton.

The full report is available on the City's website at bloomington.in.gov/sanitationmodernization.
