Public Works Environmental Programs & Operations Division is the exclusive provider of refuse, recycling and organics collection, construction, and demolition collection, and transfer services to residential and commercial customers. EPO recovers its costs of operations through refuse rate charges to customers.
On May 10, 2021, staff presented a refuse fund rate increase report to City Council for discussion. The staff report included an engineer’s report presenting a rate analysis model that calculated rate options to meet operational needs, comply with new and existing legislative requirements, and reach and maintain the required operating reserve. City Council directed staff to proceed with presentation of a resolution to increase rates
On May 24, 2021, City Council adopted a resolution declaring its intention to levy and collect the refuse, recycling, and organics user’s service charge for FY 2021/2022 – 2030/2031, which includes a 15% increase in FY 21/22, 10% increase in FY 22/23, 10% increase in FY 23/24, and 2.25% increase in FY 24/25 annually through FY 2030/2031. City Council also set a Public Hearing regarding approval of the final adoption of the rates for July 26, 2021 at 7:00 PM, however, since a July 26, 2021 meeting was not held, the Public Hearing will be at the next meeting on August 9, 2021 at 7:00 PM.
