Managing Local Government: Cases in Decision Making: Contracting for Trash poses an analytical problem that will face most if not all county and city governments: how to find the best (i.e., the most cost-efficient and effective) system for collecting residential trash. This e-book also examines a service delivery option that local governments are considering with increasing frequency: contracting with a private firm to provide a public service-in this case, the collection of the city's residential trash.
