Re: [greenyes] ?Efficiency of scale as it relates to number of franchise zones in a community?


Bob,

Let the market decide how many is efficient, by opening the system up to competition (see http://www.crra.com/irc/guide.html). If there are concerns about having too many collectors involved in any one location, consider multiple semi-exclusive franchises, like we did in Hawthorne, CA (see http://www.cityofhawthorne.com/pwks_cref-index.htm)

I live in a large County (Collier, Florida) that is developing a strategy for
residential/comercial solid waste, and residential recycling collection
franchise bids. The County has 91,000 curbside residential pickups. Data on the
number of multifamily and business accounts is still being processed.

My question is. How can I determine how many separate "Zones" can be created
in a given system to allows for competition and comparison yet not cause an
increase in the cost of the programs due to inefficiency of scale?
