City of Austin Council Waste Management Policy Working Group, April 2017

Given the need for clear policy directives concerning the City’s pursuit of Zero Waste, on March 23, 2017 the Austin City Council voted unanimously to establish the City Council Waste Management Policy Working Group.  This Council work group is tasked with examining a variety of issues ranging from procurement practices, evaluation of area facilities, materials management approaches and whether it is appropriate to continue applying the problematic Anti-Lobbying Ordinance to solicitations involving solid waste, recycling and organics management services.
