The La Habra Heights City Council will hold a public hearing on Thursday, April 23, 2020 at 6:30 P.M., at City Hall located at 1224 N. Hacienda Rd., to consider a proposed increase to the solid waste service rates for residential customers.
The City Council directed staff to send out a public notice regarding a public hearing to consider increasing solid waste service rates for residential customers. Pursuant to the City’s franchise agreement with Republic Services, residential solid waste service rates include the cost of disposing of solid waste at the landfill operated by the County. The County did not charge for the disposal of green material used as alternative daily cover (cover material placed on the surface of the landfill). Due to the passage of Assembly Bill 1594 in 2014, commencing on January 1, 2020, the County began charging for the disposal of green material used for alternative daily cover because this use will no longer constitute diversion through recycling. The purpose of the proposed increase to the solid waste service rates for residential customers is to pay for the increased disposal cost associated with composting the yard waste. The proposed increased rates are provided at the end of this notice. If the City Council approves this item, the rates effective May 1, 2020 will be reflected in the June-July 2020 billing. The rates effective July 1, 2020 will be reflected in the August – September billings. The rates may be increased in accordance with the maximum amounts and dates set forth in the exhibit.
