LUESA FY19 Fee Adjustment for Solid Waste (Second Reading)




Approve revisions to the Mecklenburg County Solid Waste Fee Ordinance


Staff Contact:                      Jeffrey M. Smithberger, Director, Solid Waste, LUESA


Presentation:                     No                     




LUESA Solid Waste proposes to change the Mecklenburg County Solid Waste Fee Ordinance by revising certain fees in the Solid Waste Program area to respond to inflation and contract service fees charged to Mecklenburg County. These changes include, but are not limited to:


1.                     Continue implementation of the multi-year fee plan developed in FY2017;

2.                     Maintaining the volumetric fees for residential customers who use County Drop-Off Centers (no increase), and increase the volumetric fees for non-residential/out of county customers who

            use those centers;

3.                     Incorporate fees to cover the costs associated with accepting, processing, and transporting waste materials to their final disposal point.

4.                     Fees contained in this Ordinance will be effective July 2, 2018.


Additionally, LUSEA Solid Waste proposes to increase the Residential Solid Waste Availability Fee from the current $24 per year, to 27.50 per year.  This increase is included in the FY 2019 Operating Budget request and is not part of the Mecklenburg County Solid Waste Fee Ordinance.


The Waste Management Advisory Board (WMAB) unanimously recommended that the BOCC approve these changes to the Solid Waste Fee Ordinance and the Residential Availability Fee at their April 17, 2018 meeting.
