Solid waste collection fees.

Authors: Senator Mark Stoops


Requires the environmental rules board to adopt rules requiring each county, city, or town that collects solid waste for disposal to charge households for solid waste collection service on a "pay as you throw basis" under which the fee is higher for a larger quantity of solid waste than for a smaller quantity of solid waste. Provides that the fees may be set according to the number of solid waste containers used by a household or the weight of the solid waste collected from the household. Requires that the rules take effect on July 1, 2015.
