  • Consider solid waste services that may be included in the long-range plan for the Lawrence community (such as, variable rate pricing, curbside recycling, yard trimmings collection, bulky item collection, and so on).
  • Seek community-wide input in the options for desired solid waste services.
  • Develop recommendations for the Lawrence City Commission regarding implementation of services or changes to existing services.
  • Propose timelines and educational outreach to achieve recommended service levels.
