On Monday morning, Recology brought their new 100% all electric garbage truck to the Plaza for a demonstration. Last year the City concluded a renegotiation of our Solid Waste Franchise Agreement with Recology. Council Member Hagele, with support from entire Council, asked about converting the garbage truck fleet to electric. The response was always, “electric garbage trucks are not yet viable.”
Yet, he persisted. Council Member Hagele insisted that the Franchise Agreement include language committing Recology to bring electric garbage trucks to Healdsburg as soon as possible. Recology has lived up to that commitment and now has a demonstration vehicle ready to test in action, in Healdsburg!
