Item 40. 20-0919

Environmental Management Department recommending the Board consider the following regarding Material Recovery Facility and solid waste collection rates for Waste Connections of California, Inc., doing business as El Dorado Disposal Service, Franchise Areas A, B, and C:
1) Find that a 1.0% Consumer Price Index increase to the existing Material Recovery Facility and solid waste collection rates, both residential and commercial, in Franchise Areas A, B, and C, to be in accordance with the interim year rate setting process as outlined in the Solid Waste Rate Setting Policies and Procedures Manual;
2) Based on the analysis completed by Crowe LLP, find that an additional flat $0.19 cent increase on all residential collection rates, and an additional 1.59% increase on all commercial collection rates in Franchise Areas A, B, and C to be in accordance with the Unforeseen Circumstances section of the Rate Setting Policies and Procedures Manual;
3) Based on the analysis completed by Crowe LLP, due to significant cost increases associated with the Material Recovery Facility construction project, find that a greater than 1% increase to certain Material Recovery Facility gates rates, phased in over a 3-year period, and a 3.23% increase to all solid waste collection rates, is warranted;
4) Consistent with the Board’s action on the Fifth Amendment to the El Dorado Disposal Service Solid Waste Services Agreement, Legistar 20-0918 also being heard this date, find that an additional increase of up to 2.46% on all Material Recovery Facility and solid waste collection rates is required to fund Environmental Management’s solid waste programs, including the ongoing operation, maintenance and monitoring of the Union Mine Landfill;
5) Adopt and authorize the Chair to sign Resolution 127-2020 (Attachment D), adjusting the Material Recovery Facility rates 3.46% (1%+2.46%) with certain rates increasing greater than up to 3.46% over a 3-year period; and
6) Adopt and Authorize the Chair to sign Resolution 128-2020 (Attachment E), adjusting the residential solid waste collection rates 6.69% (1%+3.23%+2.46%) plus $0.19 cents, and adjusting commercial solid waste collection rates 8.28% (1%+1.59%+3.23%+2.46%), for El Dorado Disposal Service Areas A, B, and C, to become effective September 1, 2020.
