Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Strategy

The Comprehensive Solid Waste Management Strategy is a future-casting and planning document that evaluates solid waste best practices, demographics, and financial impacts affecting solid waste systems locally, nationally, and globally and analyzes the gathered data to assemble a state-of-the-art strategy that helps the City strategize, identify, align, and set short- and long-term goals, policies, and actions to manage the generation, diversion, and disposal of solid waste.

Comprehensive Diversion Ordinance

The City of Denton is seeking the implementation of a Comprehensive Diversion Ordinance (CDO). The CDO would require all multi-family and commercial properties to implement a diversion/recycling program. Each business would notify the Solid Waste and Recycling department of its desired plan for diversion within the given period. As a part of the process, we are seeking public comments on the proposed ordinance. The City of Denton will be holding a town hall meeting at the City of Denton Civic Center (312 E. McKinney) on February 16, 2023, at 6 p.m. If you are unable to make the public comment meeting, please provide your thoughts and comments on the feedback form below.
