Topic               A Resolution Establishing an Environmental Clean-Up Program

Fauquier County is seeking to develop more capabilities to reduce the amount of litter and debris that is present along many roadways.  County staff has looked into the acquisition of a vehicle that has the capability of picking up larger debris (old appliances, tires, piles of trash) through the use of a hydraulic arm.  The cost of the truck is estimated to be $85,000 and the funding for three staff to implement this program is $72,600.  A portion of the staff time would be used to assist in the recycling program, thereby off setting $28,000 in contracted services currently budgeted.

It is envisioned that this new capability would be used to support voluntary clean-up programs, as well as, to provide service to residents on a scheduled basis.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors

Consider adopting the attached resolution.

Financial Impacts Analysis

Landfill operations from the construction and demolition debris program have generated sufficient funds for the program.  The program will require a one-time capital outlay for equipment of approximately $85,000 and a recurring net expense for staff of approximately $44,600.  Funds are available in the Landfill Fund for this purpose.
