Sanitation Division Annual Statistics

Data regarding the yearly operations of the Sanitation Division of Public Works.

A couple of notes regarding these statistics:

The City of Bloomington Sanitation Modernization Program officially launched in October 2017. This program eliminated trash and yard waste stickers in favor of directly billing customers for their monthly trash cart rentals and yard waste pick-ups via their utility bills.

Also part of the modernized sanitation program, the City of Bloomington's recycling operations converted from co-mingled to single stream collection in 2017. This means that all recyclable materials (metal, cans, glass, fiber, paper, etc.) are now all collected together instead of separately.

Additionally, fiber and scrap rebates provided to the City of Bloomington by its recycling provider were effectively ended in 2017. This was largely due to major changes in international demand and fluctuations in the domestic commodities market.
