Business Case Evaluation – Existing Park Facility Outdoor Refuse and Recyclables Collection 
3
FIGURE 2
Non-Financial Evaluation - Comparison of Total Weighted Benefit Scores and Components by Criterion
Recommendation
Based on the financial evaluation the cost of the Carry in, Carry out recyclable policy option
represents the lowest net present value. This option represents a reduction in level of service
the City delivers to the visitors of the existing park facilities, which is reflected in the evaluation
of the non-financial considerations. Therefore,
Option 3 - Purchase a Split Body Truck
is
recommended because it presents an opportunity for the City to increase efficiency with City
resources, has the second lowest net present value total cost, and presents a significant
increase in benefit to the community over the status quo option, as evidenced in the non-
financial evaluation. It is recommended that at the end of the life cycle of the existing Parks
Department’s collection trucks, estimated to be around 2015, the City shift its current collection
strategy for existing park facilities to include a split body truck to combine one of the refuse and
the recyclables collection routes.
