A Work Session to Discuss Options for Implementing the Recycling Fee

Topic Description:

During the FY 2010 budget process, the Board of Supervisors included $366,000 additional revenue in the adopted budget in anticipation of a recycling fee.  This new fee is intended to recoup  the recycling expenses associated with the operation of the Countyís solid waste convenience sites by applying a surcharge on residents and businesses. 

Subsequent to the Boardís adoption of the FY 2010 budget, the County Administrator convened a staff committee consisting of representatives from County Administration, the Commissioner of the Revenue, the Treasurerís Office, the County Attorney, Environmental Services, Management & Budget and Finance to develop a recommended approach for implementing the recycling fee.  Staff will present the groupís findings and request guidance regarding the Boardís preferred approach.


Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors: 

Conduct the work session.

Financial Impacts Analysis:

The FY 2010 Adopted Budget includes $366,000 in anticipated revenue from the new recycling fee, partially offsetting General Fund recycling program expenses totalling $452,000.  Staff will present recommendations to recover the $366,000 in budgeted revenue, as well as scenarios that would offset the entire $452,000 in FY 2010 recycling program expenses.
