In 2010, the City of Wichita has been working with the citizens of Wichita and the hauler community serving Wichita to develop a solid waste and recycling plan that addresses community concerns. In Fall of 2010, City Council Members were presented a proposal in a council workshop that would create a Solid Waste Hauler Cooperative.
The 2010 proposal addressed the following frequently mentioned concerns in the community:
- Limited recycling and over abundance of waste dumped into local disposal sites.
- Increased traffic of waste hauling trucks on City residential streets
Concerns with the proposed 2010 plan were mentioned by the public and the Council after its release; the majority of these concerns centered on the price for service and freedom of choice to select a trash service. To address these issues, the revised 2011 plan does not recommend a cooperative of haulers, but recommends City licensing requirements to increase recycling in the community and decrease the waste stream to local disposal sites while keeping the free market open for solid waste collection.
