Why are routes changing?

Routes are changing because of current and projected growth south of 52nd Avenue South. Currently, south-side routes are much larger than north-side routes, making it difficult to collect garbage and recycling efficiently. The new collection plan will allow Solid Waste to evenly distribute the workload and maximize the use of equipment and manpower.
