The Public Works director is asking Waste Management for an extension of its curbside recycling pickup as a group of DPW laborers, dispatchers and supervisors look at changes to all garbage, recycling and yard waste disposal services offered in Wauwatosa.
The Public Works group likely will not be ready to implement changes in service by Dec. 31, when the contract with Waste Management is set to expire.
Public Works Director Bill Porter has suggested a six-month extension of the contract that requires twice a month curbside pickup of recycled materials. The Budget and Finance Committee tonight will discuss the contract extension and forward a recommendation to the full Common Council for action the following week.
The Public Works group is expected to bring options, including fully automating garbage and recycling collections, forward as the city prepares its 2012 budget.
