NOTICE OF ENACTMENT - CHAPTER 3500 SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT ORDINANCE FEE SCHEDULE CHANGES
On Tuesday, June 1, 2021, the Olmsted County Board enacted revisions to Olmsted County's Solid Waste Management Ordinance Fee Schedule. The revisions do the following:
The Solid Waste Management fee schedule was updated to make previously temporary emergency fees for electronic waste at the Olmsted County Recycling Center Plus (OCRC) permanent. Minor fee changes were adopted at the Hazardous Waste Facility (HWF).
The self-haul service charge at the Olmsted Waste-to-Energy Facility (OWEF) and Kalmar Landfill was modified to parallel the average surcharge charged if using a licensed hauler (charged by percentage).
The rate of demolition material and waste combustor ash at the Kalmar Landfill was changed to a per ton fee instead of a per cubic yard fee in addition to a rate increase for asbestos.
The effective date for the change at the OCRC and HWF was June 1. The effective date for the change at the Kalmar Landfill was approved for June 14-except for demolition material. Rate changes for demolition material will go into effect September 1. The effective date for the self-haul service charge change was approved for October 1 for the OWEF and Kalmar Landfill.
