The Board authorized the use
of the old County landfill for the construction and
demolition debris in June and July of 2001. As a part of
those discussions, the Board took action at the August 2001
meeting to allocate revenue from the Construction Demolition
Debris (CDD) landfill in a manner that eliminated the
Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) tipping fee previously paid by
the Towns of The Plains, Remington and Warrenton.

In the period following the
2001 action, the CDD landfill generated more revenue than
originally anticipated and the Towns have subsequently not
been charged a MSW tipping fee. Based on the current
tonnage and a fee of $45.00 a ton that has been recommended
for all MSW waste the annual cost of the Town tipping fees
is shown below:
It is expected that the old
landfill will no longer be available for CDD materials near
December 2006. Therefore, beginning January 1, 2007, it
should be determined if the fees paid by the Towns for MSW
should be reinstated.
attached longer term
financial plan for the landfill contemplates that
the Enterprise Fund will be compensated for Town wastes.
Another option to the Town’s paying for the disposal fee is
for the General Fund to transfer sufficient funds to the
Landfill Fund to pay this fee as it now does for wastes
delivered from the convenience sites.
