STATE SOLID WASTE FEE HIKE PROPOSED
Senate Bill 50 proposes to increase the solid waste fee that goes to state agencies by 25 cents, bringing the total to $5.00 per ton. The entire 25 cent increase would go to soil and water conservation districts throughout Ohio.
Landfills are required to collect the fee from those who bring solid waste to the landfills for disposal. Haulers, in turn, are likely to pass the increase along to their customers - residents and businesses. Past fee increases such as this have resulted in consumer trash rates increasing at a higher rate than the fee itself.
There are soil and water conservation districts in each of our four counties who could benefit from this increase, depending on how funds are distributed.
