What are we tracking?

RESIDENTIAL YARD AND FOOD WASTE THAT IS COLLECTED FROM THE GREEN CART PROGRAM.

 

 

How are we measuring this?

EACH TRUCK THAT COLLECTS THIS MATERIAL IS WEIGHED AS IT ENTERS THE LANDFILL AND THE DATA IS COLLECTED USING THE PC SCALES SCALE PROGRAM.

What progress are we making?

THE CITY OF BRANDON CONTINUES TO ATTRACT NEW PARTICIPATING HOUSEHOLDS TO THIS VOLUNTARY PROGRAM AND IS CURRENTLY SITTING AT APPROXIMATELY 8,528 HOUSEHOLDS.THIS IS AN INCREASE OF 678 PARTRICIPATING HOUSEHOLDS COMPARED TO THE END OF 2019 OR 7.95%. WITH WEATHER PLAYING SUCH A BIG FACTOR IN THE AMOUNT OF MATERIAL THAT IS COLLECTED WE DO SEE FLUCTUATIONS IN WEIGHTS FROM YEAR TO YEAR EVEN THOUGH WE ARE ADDING MORE PARTICIPANTS ON AN ONGOING BASIS. DURING WET YEARS THE NEED TO CUT GRASS IS MORE FREQUENT THAN DRY YEARS RESULTING IN MORE WEIGHT.
