City-wide Sanitation Auto-load Study




The City Public Works Department initiated a study to evaluate the opportunities for conversion of the Sanitation Division curbside pick-up services to an autoload program. The program was recommended to be implemented with a phased approach as funds are available to acquire the equipment necessary. Benefits identified in the report include: 

  • Lower overall operating expenses
  • Reduction in staff related injuries reducing Workman’s compensation claims
  • Wheeled garbage containers may be easier to handle/move around.
  • Reduction in litter on the streets prior to pick-up.
  • Higher staff efficiency rates, number of staff versus homes served.
