Revenue & Expenditure Committee Inspector General report

Revenue & Expenditure Resolution:  New Solid Waste Collection Program:

Copied below is the resolution that was considered at the May membership meeting:

 Whereas, the FY2015 budget for solid waste collection proposes a new fee for collection of organic waste;
Whereas, adding the new fee would raise costs to residents to $307.04 per household per year, and approximately $1 million in the aggregate;
Whereas, Arlington County residents have already achieved a recycling level of 52%, exceeding both Virginia requirements and the Northern Virginia recycling rate;
Whereas the proposed new organic waste collection would minimally improve recycling levels while discouraging composting and leaving lawn clippings on the lawn;
Whereas, Arlington County already conducts three separate waste collections;
Whereas, the proposed new collection requires further separation of waste materials, plus use of a new collection container;
Therefore, be it resolved that:
1) The County drop implementation of the proposed new collection, or
2) The County should offer the program as a voluntary ‘opt-in’ program without penalty for those who choose to not participate.
